The armies and wars of the Sun King 1643-1715. Volume 5: Buccaneers and soldiers in the Americas René Chartrand.

A must-have book on the campaigns in the Caribbean.

This book is excellent and it is well worth getting. It is a serious military history of the late 17th and early 18th centuries in the Caribbean and elsewhere. It is part of a series but can be taken on its own as its subject matter is different. For what I think is a first Chartrand and artist Patrice Courcelle recreate the buccaneers, colonial soldiers and militia of this age which inspired so much interest in fiction and movies.

If you are a wargamer, or you have an interest in the age of piracy this book is for you. My favourite book of this year so far.
