This true tale features thrilling ocean battles, hand-to-hand combat, and the first landing on foreign soil by the U.S. Marines, and it's as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published.

The civilized world's experience with the Barbary Pirates shows a lesson that is often forgotten in today's international relations and should not be. You can't deal with criminals and terrorists except from a position of strength. Almost every war the U.S. as been drawn into has been following a period when we let our military strength drop. Only then do other countries feel enboldened to try to push us out of the way. This book shows the U.S. at both its worst and best as a leader of freedom and it all true history that has lessons to teach and that need to be remembered.
