The real history of pirates

Manushag N. Powell

DVD - 2021

Other than scale, what is the difference between a pirate and the vast armies of an emperor? Were the men who famously traversed the Atlantic actually heroic explorers, or were they pirates? In The Real History of Pirates, you'll look at world history from a new point of view, realizing much of what you've learned before should be viewed through a more accurate, post-imperialistic filter.
