The amazing true story of Blackbeard, Calico Jack and all the other pirates of the Caribbean and Captain Woodes Rogers, the privateer turned governor of the Bahamas, who brought them to book.
David Cordingly was Keeper of Pictures and Head of Exhibitions at the National Maritime Museum for twelve years, where he organised such exhibitions as `Captain James Cook, Navigator', `The Mutiny on the Bounty' and `Pirates: Fact and Fiction'. His other books include Life among the Pirates, Heroines and Harlots, Billy Ruffian and Cochrane, the Dauntless.
`Both a brilliant idea and an engrossing book that tells the story of a ship of the line in Nelson's day ... Billy Ruffian is for anyone interested in the Napoleonic wars or entranced by the adventures of Hornblower or Jack Aubrey' * Bernard Cornwall, Books of the Year, Mail on Sunday * `David Cordingly is a brilliant historian: authoritative but easy to read, with an eye for the story yet with a touch light enough to let the facts speak for themselves' * Daily Telegraph * `No-one could be better qualified to write this excellent biography of the ship than David Cordingly' * Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph * `Intriguing and satisfying ... Cochrane packed enough drama and history to shame both Horatio Nelson and Sir Francis Drake' * Washington Post *
