Citizen, colonist, pioneer! These three words carry the history of the United States back to its earliest form. But who prepared the way for the pioneers from the Old World and what ensured their safety in the New? The title of this volume, Elizabethan Sea-Dogs, gives the only answer. It was during the reign of Elizabeth, that Englishmen won the command of the sea under the consummate leadersip of Sir Francis Drake. Drake and his companions are known to fame as Dea-Dogs. Anglo-America history begins with that century of maritime adventure and naval war in which English sailors blazed and secured the sea-trail to America.
