    Description: Before the era of great pirates in the early 18th century, there was an even more bloodthirsty phase of attacks in the Caribbean known as the ' Buccaneering Era'. For over 50 years, English, French and Dutch buccaneers launched a series of devastating attacks on Spanish towns, ports and shipping. Well-known buccaneers such as Captain Henry Morgan carried out their raids under the protection of the English crown, and in 1692, the French even used buccaneers to help its army capture the great Spanish city of Cartagena!

Description: Designed as a carrier-borne strike aircraft for the Royal Navy, the Blackburn/ BAe Buccaneer eventually went on to serve with the RAF and the South African Air Force. Operating from Royal Navy aircraft carriers to deliver nuclear weapons and conventional ordnance, the Navy transferred its Buccaneers to the RAF in 1969 where they were used in the overland strike role, later seeing combat in Gulf War 1 in 1991. The last Buccaneers were retired from RAF service in 1994.

Description: In the 17th and 18th centuries, sailing from Europe or Africa to the Americas, or trading from India to Central America, was a risky undertaking. Ferocious storms and barely-understood diseases weren't the only threats; ruthless pirates lurked on the horizon, craving wealth and reputation. In Pirates, Buccaneers, the Republic and the Caribbean, we cover everything you need to know about the legendary Golden Age of Piracy. * Uncover the true stories of the bloodthirsty buccaneers who made their fortune plundering the high seas, from Captain Kidd and Edward ` Blackbeard' Teach to female pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read. * Find out what life was really like aboard a pirate ship, from the roles of the crew to divvying out the spoils. * Investigate the founding and exploits of the notorious Flying Gang, a band of fierce pirate captains, and the piratical haven they founded on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. Packed with incredible illustrations and insights into the period, this is the perfect guide for anyone who wants to learn about this famed Golden Age of Piracy.
