The End of Barbary Terror

America's 1815 War against the Pirates of North Africa

Frederick C. Leiner

The End of Barbary Terror tells the gripping story of the 1815 American diplomatic and naval campaign against the Barbary regencies of North Africa. Drawing upon numerous ship logs, journals, love letters, and government documents, Frederick C. Leiner paints a vivid picture of the world of naval officers and diplomats in the early nineteenth century, as he recreates a remarkable and little known episode from the early American republic.
