Description
In 1603 John Ward led a mass desertion from the English navy, stole a civilian vessel from Portsmouth, and defected to the Ottoman Empire at Tunis. Allied with the pasha, Ward led Muslim soldiers and sailors in attacks against Christian shipping. He became wealthy as a lord, and when his offers to trade gold for a pardon in England were rejected, Ward converted to Islam and settled in Tunis, scandalizing Christians throughout Europe and earning infamy for sailing a fleet of English ships under the Ottoman crescent. Was he the villain that history made him to be, wonders Greg Bak in this riveting history, or was he a spectacularly successful adventurer and entrepreneur, seeking a better opportunity after being ill-treated by his own country?
