    Dudley Pope ✓ 4 Read PDF READ Buccaneer Full review at Pope’s The Buccaneer shows promise on the surface but doesn’t really deliver as a novel Set in the 17th century it tells the story of a royalist plantation owner in Barbados who finds that he will have to flee the island or face the Roundheads whose fleet is coming over from England to subdue the Caribbean settlements The p

    Read & Download Buccaneer Dudley Pope ✓ 4 Read PDF READ Buccaneer I did enjoy this book and will read in the series But this is certainly not a typical sort of Age of Sail book such as Hornblower or Bolitho Firstly this is a century earlier and the tale of a buccaneer not a King's officer And the main character owns his ship before he has any idea how to sail it It seems an explanation of how one might come to buccaneering though I can't say how accurate the picture is

    PDF READ Buccaneer Meh I'm undecided as to whether or not this was good enough to warrant reading the rest of the series It's not awful but it's not really good either

Buccaneer Read ✓ 104 It is the 1650's and Spain considers the Caribbean to be its own private sea But England Holland and France conspire to battle for freedom on the oceans set in days littered with t. Neither the Golden Age of Piracy nor the pirates themselves sprang fully formed from dragon s teeth It and they came about by a very singular and unlikely set of circumstancesFirst it reuired the base material the people These were supplied by the rise of Cromwell in England and the death of the King Cavalier supporters were exiled or fled to the Caribbean to escape the new regime Most were not sailors or adventurers but minor nobility and landowners Added to these were the sweepings of the streets and inmates of prisons in England and unfortunate Irish all of whom were kidnapped and sent to the Caribbean as indentured servants slaves in all but nameNext was a suitable location a base in hostile Spanish territory where the pirates could find safe harbour supplies crew and businessmen to buy their plunder This came about by the a doomed expedition sent by Cromwell to exert English power in the Spanish Main in the form a fleet led by Penn and Venables The expedition was a miserable failure many of the soldiers and sailors dying from disease and hunger rather than Spanish weapons The best the survivors could do was to capture the Island of Jamaica which was largely unoccupied but which boasted the finest harbour in the region The English founded a settlement there a settlement that would come to be named Port Royal the most sinful city in the entire worldIn this novel Ned Yorke an exiled member of a Cavalier family has his estate in Barbados stolen from him leaving him with only a merchant vessel and a crew of ex servants and his lover the wife of the Roundhead supporter who stole his estate He is not a hardened adventurer or even any kind of a sailor just as could be expected from someone who was basically a plantation ownerAnd yet during the course of the novel we see our hero moulded by circumstances beyond his control into first a pirate a buccaneer and then a privateer a pirate with a license He commences his career at the very time when the seeds of Port Royal and the Golden Age of Piracy are first planted Although he would prefer to find a new plot of land to restart his plantation this is not to be and slowly and painfully he realises that his only option is piracy and he sets about learning the necessary skills while at the same time keeping his followers alive and fed and dealing with the hostile Roundhead Governor of JamaicaThis is not the novel for someone looking for another Pirates of the Caribbean or the ordered and structured adventures of an officer in the Royal Navy Instead it is a view of the life at sea and of a band of ordinary men and women forced to adopt piracy as a way of life The language history and the lifestyle of the period are well and accurately portrayed and the characters feel very real and human with all their strengths frailties and lusts Even the women are well portrayed being neither helpless playthings or pure and haughty ladies but real and very hardy people suited to a very harsh and dangerous timeI give the book five stars and I intend to read the rest of the series I recommend you give it a fair try too

Dudley Pope is hailed as one of the great maritime writers but I m not too sure why This is the first book of his I have read and I can t say I was too impressedUnlike some of the other reviewers I read this through to the end but probably only because I was stuck on a ten hour coach journeyWhilst I do not doubt the historical and geographical accuracies of the novel nor the technical sailing expertise I just found the whole affair rather boring The main character fleeing plantation Royalist Ned Yorke shows no development or characterisation other than the very forced progression from rich farmer to murdering pirateI enjoyed the climatic battle but I don t feel it was worth hanging around for
