Praise

"Turnbull takes readers on a journey through the centuries of the Asian pirate. Using a variety of photographs, maps and color plats illustrated by Richard Hook, readers are immersed into the exciting, yet dangerous life of the pirate. Weapons, armor and tactics are described in great detail, yet remain easy to read." -Timothy Baghurst (April 2008)

"Author Stephen Turnbaull takes a look at the start of piracy in the area and concentrates on some of the more successful raids and pirate leaders… All of this is enhanced by period accounts and artwork… This book combines two favorite subjects – piracy and medieval Japan – into one superb volume that you won’t want to miss." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (December 2007)
