"An eloquent and vivid portrait that includes a view through the telescopes of rear-echeloncommanders, the rifle sights of front-line skirmishers, and the clouded spectacles of field surgeons laboring in candlelit abattoirs . . . the finest kind of popular history."--William Rosen, author of "Justinian's Flea: The First Great Plague" and the "End of the Roman Empire" Praise for "Empire of Blue Water""A swashbuckling adventure . . . [the] characters leap to life." --"The New York Times Book Review" "Reeking of authentic blood and thunder, and as richly detailed as a work of fiction . . . dramatically evokes the rough and tumble age when pirates owned the seas. A thrilling and fascinating adventure."--Caroline Alexander, author of "The Endurance" "Stephan Talty's vigorous history of seventeenth-century pirates of the Caribbean will sate even fickle Jack Sparrow fans. A pleasure to read from bow to stern."--"Entertainment Weekly" "Serves up swashbuckling history at its briny, blood-soaked best, with enough violence and passion to keep the pages flying by."--Tom Reiss, author of "The Orientalist" "Talty's delicious new book succeeds where other volumes of history fail. . . .A ripping yarn, worthy of its gaudy subject."--"Dallas Morning News" "From the Hardcover edition."
