"Here is the extraordinary story of an important, yet often neglected, event in U.S. history: America's first war against an Arab despot. When pirates on the Barbary Coast of Africa terrorized American ships, President Thomas Jefferson ordered military warships to strike back. That order led to the creation of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps we know today. This is a rousing narrative of a little known war that is filled with fascinating personalities."--Publisher's web site
