Paperback Summary:
The Privateer is the first book of five in the Privateers and Gentleman series. Williams blends fiction with actual history in telling his stories. The Privateer is set during the American War of Independence with its heroes being the fictional Markham Brothers, Malachi, Jehu, and Josiah. All three are American privateer captains raiding British ships in the pursuit of profit and glory. A good book with an American twist to it for the fans of O'Brian and Forester's works.
