hard bitten adventurers runaway slaves and vicious cutthroats and turned them into the most feared army in the Western Hemisphere Sailing out from the English stronghold of Port Royal Jamaica “the wickedest city in the New World” Morgan and his men terrorized Spanish merchant ships and devastated the cities where great riches in silver gold and gems lay waiting His last raid a daring assault Having recently reviewed Colin Woodard s excellent history of Caribbean piracy The Republic of Pirates and realizing that I had name checked this book in that review I thought it necessary to dust off an older review that I had in the can for Stephan Talty s Empire of Blue Water It s certainly a worthwhile exercise to pick up this book if like me you are spending some of your winter months dreaming of beaches and sand and things of a nautical nature Which reminds me I really need to start planning this summer s trip to the coast Empire of Blue Water is a worthy addition to the canon of privateering and buccaneer histories More of a narrative account than a dry recitation of historical documentation it maintains its momentum all the way to the end It s not a large work but it packs a wealth of fun information inside its coversThe book covers the period from the mid to late 1600s opening with Britain s capture of Jamaica from its Spanish settlers The taking of Jamaica was a serious blow to the Spanish Empire rocking it to its very core especially in light of Jamaica s advantageous geographical position in the middle of the Caribbean shipping lanes Talty follows the rise of Henry Morgan perhaps the most famous privateer of his generation The tension rises as Morgan begins a systematic campaign of mostly state sponsored pillaging and looting of the Spanish Empire in the New World Empire of Blue Water does a good job of relating what it must have been like to be a privateer in that time To move his narrative along Talty creates a composite character named Roderick with the intention of giving the reader a window into the life of one such adventurer This literary trick works most of time as the author follows Roderick through many a tight spot Roderick s life was hard one no doubt but the reader also gets the impression that men like Roderick wouldn t have had it any other wayThe book is full of the political intrigue of the time and it does a good job of covering the basic historical drivers in play during the period Talty s impression of the Spanish Empire is not particularly favorable as he continually drives home the point that the Spanish political system itself was often its own worst enemy Caught in overbearing tradition and bureaucracy the Spanish are often cast as bumblers and malcontentsIt should also be noted that Morgan was a privateer rather than a pirate His raids were done under the cover of state sponsored commissions a detail that Morgan took very seriously as he was at heart a man of the CrownThe book is a bit weak on source material using a journal by John Esuemeling called Buccaneers of America as its primary source Esuemeling was a member of Morgan s crew and his somewhat sensationalist account of what happened on those fateful voyages should be taken with a grain of salt Talty himself admits as much at various times in the book but he liberally uotes from Esuemeling anyway Nonetheless this is a fruitful read if you have any sort of interest in the Caribbean history of privateering Encore Grace of the New WorldMorgan gathered disaffected European sailors and soldiers hard bitten adventurers
