The swashbuckling biography of the naval officer known as the Sword of England. Welshman Henry Morgan has come to be portrayed as a black-hearted, fierce pirate. This error in terms and in the assessment of Morgan�s character led to the filing of the first libel lawsuit, brought in protest to a book published in 1684 claiming he had been an indentured servant, was a pirate, and was responsible for atrocities. In fact, Morgan was commissioned to aid the British navy in fighting enemies of the throne and was a superb military tactician who led a dozen victorious campaigns against massive odds.
