Read full description of the books:



Come erano fatte le navi pirata? Cosa indossavano i bucanieri? È vero che infliggevano tremende torture ai nemici catturati? A queste e a tante altre domande risponde questo volume, una storia della pirateria nella sua epoca d'oro, dal XVI al XVII secolo. Un libro ricco di aneddoti e atmosfera, corredato da numerose cartine, che racconta la vera storia di personaggi leggendari come Barbanera, Morgan o il Capitano Kidd, ma anche di tanti uomini comuni; e che ci sorprende svelando l'esistenza di coraggiose donne pirata o descrivendo minuziosamente lo stile e le severissime regole della vita di questi fuorilegge. Un mondo misterioso e affascinante, circondato dal velo del mito e raramente conosciuto nella sua realtà storica, su cui fa ora definitivamente luce questa Storia della pirateria, tanto avvincente quanto storicamente rigorosa.

Read information about the author

Ebook Storia della pirateria read Online! David Cordingly is an English naval historian who is considered one of the leading authorities on pirates. He held the position of Keeper of Pictures and Head of Exhibitions at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England for twelve years.

David Cordingly organised several exhibitions at the National Maritime Museum, including Captain James Cook, Navigator and The Mutiny on the Bounty. Perhaps the most notable of these exhibitions was Pirates: Fact and Fiction [1], which became a critical and popular success, followed by a book of the same title, authored by Cordingly and John Falconer. The popularity of the exhibition lead Cordingly to explore the subject further in his book Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates. This was followed by Heroines and Harlots: Women at Sea in the Great Age of Sail (published in the U. S. under the title Women Sailors and Sailors' Women: An Untold Maritime History), expanding on a subject Cordingly had touched upon in Under the Black Flag in a chapter entitled "Women Pirates and Pirates' Women".

The Billy Ruffian: His Majesty's Ship Bellerophon and the Downfall of Napoleon, published in 2003, was longlisted for the 2003 Wolfson History Prize. It tells the story of an English warship, HMS Bellerophon, which played an important part in many battles and held captive the defeated Napoleon following the Battle of Waterloo.

Cordingly appears on the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD bonus features in a section called "Below Deck", a virtual tour of a pirate ship[2]. This consists of several documentary shorts, hosted by Cordingly, comparing piracy fact and fiction along the same lines as Under the Black Flag.
