Description

Although pirates have a fascination which has resulted in the production of numerous books and documentaries in recent years (including titles by Osprey), no detailed depiction of their ships has ever been produced. Following the success of the Elite Series Pirates title, this book will provide a detailed description and pictorial exploration of the ships that scoured the high seas during the 'Golden age of Piracy'. Concentrating on the vessels of the leading (and most colourful) pirates of their age, the book will incorporate the latest archaeological evidence to produce a fascinating and spirited account of these craft.show more
