At the end of the War of the Spanish Succession, the Caribbean was a hotbed of piracy. Former privateers had lost their right to legally take enemy merchant ships, and many turned to freebooting on their own account. Edward 'Blackbeard' Teach was the most notorious pirate of the 'Golden Age of Piracy'. A larger-than-life character, he cultivated a fearsome image and by blockading Charleston he almost brought North America's maritime trade to a standstill.

However, when rumours emerged that Blackbeard was setting up a base off North Carolina, the governor of Virginia ordered a ruthless land and sea operation to 'expurgate the nest of vipers'. Blackbeard's Last Fight is the story of the largest and most successful anti-piracy raid of the era, and how the most notorious of pirates met his match.
