1 BAK, Greg BARBARY PIRATE. The Life and Crimes of John Ward, the Most Infamous Privateer of His Time
Stroud, Glos. Sutton Publishing 2006 0750943505 / 9780750943505 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine 
xiii+255pp+illus. In 1603 John Ward, a sailor of James I's navy, led a mass desertion, stole a civilian vessel from Portsmouth Harbour and defected to the Ottoman Empire's outpost of Tunis. From there his unbridled and brutal piracy saw him become the most feared privateer of his time, revelling in ill-gotten wealth and - in the final rejection of his native land - embracing Islam. He led a revolution in seafaring tactics and attacked Christian shipping of all nations, soon being pursued by pirate-hunters across the world. A man who rose from nothing to became a brilliant naval commander and successful, if amoral, entrepreneur. Bibliography and Index.
