Pirates: Adventurers of the High Seas

by David Marley (Author)


From ancient Rome to the Chinese empire, from the Greeks to the Normans, pirates have affected economies and governments for eons by disrupting trade routes and terrorizing citizens.

Fables of these fugitives evolved over the years, eventually becoming the popular myths they are today.
