Pirates! by Roy McMillan

Pirates are everywhere - and they have been ever since boats were used as carriers. They are in stories ranging from Treasure Island through Peter Pan to Pirates of the Caribbean; they are in our imaginations with peg-legs, hook-hands and parrots on their shoulders saying 'Aharr, me hearties!' and they continue to cause havoc in the Gulf of Aden in the 21st century.

And there are plenty of 'Gruesome Alerts', just to prepare you for the extra gory bits -
