The Buccaneers of America

Few could provide the insight into the life and times of Captain Henry Morgan like Alexander Exquemelin. His first hand account of the voyages of one of histories most successful privateers provides a unique perspective. The book includes other contemporaries of Morgan's as well, but the authors front row seat as ship's doctor for Morgan's South American exploits truly makes this historic account a must read.

The Face of Battle : A Study of Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme

Keegan analyzes warfare. This book, perhaps more than any other, identifies the impact of human behavior and technology on warfare. The book chronicles the history of warfare in a small corner of France, a location that has been witness to some of the greatest battles in history. Keegan's style truly puts a face on the battlefield. His writing is powerful, personal, and enlightening. Read this book and never think of warfare or military strategy the same way again.
