Pirates

It may surprise you to know that Pirates made bigger money by capturing towns than ships. Not that they wouldn't take a ship if they got the chance. In fact, it may surprise you to learn that twenty pirates in a couple of canoes or in a single longboat would not hesitate to capture a mighty Spanish galleon. And did it. All the time.

Heartless as desert scorpions. Desperate as starving wolves. Improvident as helpless children. Brave as charging rhinos. Ready to take a fortified tall stone castle guarding the gates to the Spanish empire with no more than a sword in one hand and a pistol in the other.

A Dutchman who sailed with Captain Henry Morgan wrote what he saw with his own eyes and did with his own hands.
