The Story of the Barbary Corsairs (Version 2)

Stanley LANE-POOLE (1854 - 1931) and J. D. Jerrold KELLEY (1847 - 1922)

The Barbary pirates, sometimes called Barbary corsairs or Ottoman corsairs, were Ottoman and Berber pirates and privateers who operated from North Africa. The most famous (or infamous) was Barbarossa. Here Kelley and Lane-Poole give us an unromanticized look at these villains of the seas. The work includes the rise of the Knights Templar and the colonization of Africa by England and France.
