Thomas Jefferson and the Tripoli Pirates: The Forgotten War That Changed American History

But this is to say that the authors let historical idealism bend their narrative, and that they admit a hidden motive for the entire exercise only two pages before the epilogue. But while nothing succeeds like success, I still smell a jingo. This is cherry-picking history to suit a modern agenda. The turn of the 19th century was a very different time, and the world a different place. Go figure.

This slim volume recounts the often forgotten war that ensued after newly-elected President Thomas Jefferson refused to pay bribes to the pirates off the northern coast of Africa. Interesting bit of American history that I admittedly knew little about. The books reads like a fiction novel and moves at a quick entertaining pace. I would have liked the author to be more neutral in the story telling as you can quickly see there is a definitive bias and bent to how the story unfolds. I am a great lover, and reader, of history, yet other than being vaguely aware that young America had experienced issues with the Barbary Pirates, I had no real knowledge of the depicted events.
