The Pirates Laffite: The Treacherous World of the Corsairs of the Gulf

'“This massive, tenaciously researched book . . . should prove the last word on Laffite. Or should I say the Laffites? . . . Davis has restored Pierre to his rightful place in the story and gives us a full account of ‘les deux freres.’” —The Washington Post   “Separating folklore from fact, Davis debunks hoary myths . . . For those who want to understand how the Laffites’ privateering operations worked, Davis’ account is the best yet produced.” —The Times-Picayune (New Orleans)'
