This book covers the mid to late 17th Century's pirate activity mostly against the Spanish.
Thus book begins during the War of Jenkin's Ear all the way through the Napoleonic Wars. Though this books centers more on the state sanctioned privateers with their purpose built ships than it does on actual pirates.One would think these three books have thoroughly covered all there is to know about pirates again one would be wrong.
There are many pictures of period ships with figures to scale in this book its very helpful for anyone trying to convert ships like myself.
Finally the pirate wargamer will find these last two titles very useful.
