Reading Tip: Scourge of the Seas

Recently I bought Osprey's "Scourge of the Seas" by Angus Konstam. This 240-page hardcover book compiles the contents of the previously released books "Elite 67: Pirates 1660-1730", "Elite 69: Buccaneers 1620-1700", "Elite 74: Privateers & Pirates 1730-1830" and "New Vanguard 70: The Pirate Ship 1660-1730", and thus provides an excellent overview from the rise of the bucaneers to the golden age of piracy. Highly recommended to anyone wishing to get into piratey wargaming and interested in knowing what it is they're recreating - beyond the Hollywood clichés.
