A Young Country's First Test Overseas
Who could stop the menace of the pirates from the Barbary Coast? The Barbary pirates had been preying on ships off the coast of Africa for hundreds of years. It seemed as if no one could stop them--not even the powerful British or French navies--until a new country across the Atlantic decided to take on the task itself.
Go with C. S. Forester, author of the classic Horatio Hornblower series, to the shores of Tripoli in North Africa and experience exciting sea battles, midnight raids, hand-to-hand combat, and the first landing on foreign soil by the U.S. Marines.
This story about the brave young American sailors who risked everything and made their names fighting for their country's honor is still as fresh and relevant today as it was when it took place over two hundred years ago.
About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
In addition to being the creator of the swashbuckling hero Horatio Hornblower, C.S. Forester wrote numerous biographies and popular novels--including crime stories. His Payment Deferred became both a play and a film, and the movie version of his most popular book, The African Queen, remains a Hollywood classic to this day.
