Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean
In Jewish Pirates of The Caribbean, Edward Kritzler brings light on a hidden chapter of Jewish history while telling the tale of a swashbuckling group of Jews who plundered the high seas in the aftermath of the Spanish Inquisition.
At the end of the fifteenth century, many Jews had to flee Spain and Portugal. The most adventurous among them sailed for the sea with ships names such as the Prophet Samuel, Queen Esther, and Shield of Abraham.
They attacked and ransacked the Spanish fleet and formed alliances with European powers to ensure the safety of Jewish life in hiding.
Jewish Pirates of the Caribbean will fascinate you with high-sea-adventures and encounters with many legendary pirates such as Captain Morgan, as well as portrait the cruelty, terror, and greed that flourished during the Age of Discovery.
