From the Back Cover:

America's legalized pirates plundered on the high seas to win freedom for their country and a fortune for themselves. Discover the little know story of how 2,000 privately armed Yankee vessels captured sixteen British warships and almost 3,000 merchantmen during the Revolution. This makeshift "civilian navy" crippled British commerce, seized crucial supplies for Washington's army, and earned $50 million for its owners and crew.
