Reviews

"An eloquent and vivid portrait that includes a view through the telescopes of rear-echelon commanders, 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.
