Piet Hein The Dutch Privateer Hero and Real Captain Silver

In quick succession Piet Hein had been captured by the Spanish, made to serve as a galley slave for four years, and then returned in exchange for Spanish prisoners.

Over the next few years he was a successful privateer, attacking and capturing many ships of the Spanish and Portuguese fleets before being taken once again by the Spanish, this time near Cuba, and held for another four years.

The irrepressible privateer bounced back again and had many major successes. Then in 1628, the Dutch despatched another three large privateer fleets to press home the advantage and hit the Spanish even harder. The smaller Dutch ships had the advantage of speed and manoeuvrability over the heavier Spanish galleons, whose routes were familiar to all the privateers. After several battles of varying success, most of the Dutch fleet headed home. The Spanish captains in turn, assuming they were now relatively safe, also decided to set sail, their ships’ bellies full of Mexican silver.

Piet Hein was waiting for them. He had augmented his original small fleet with others from Cuba, and with a force of 31 well-armed ships bore down on the unsuspecting Spaniards. Having cut off their exit to the east and barred their way to safe haven in Havana, he pursued them into a bay and there accepted their surrender, along with 12 million guilders’ worth of silver and other fine cargo. Not one shot had been fired. On his return he received a rapturous reception and was an immediate hero.

His victory had been the greatest ever achieved by the Dutch in the Caribbean, and one of only a very few defeats in the entire history of the famed Spanish ships of the Silver Fleet.

Did you know?…
Keelhauling was a brutal punishment devised by the Dutch, but soon became widespread. It involved the fixing of a rope at one end of the ship, passing it beneath the keel, bringing it up at the other end and tying it to the man to be punished, who would be naked and bound. He was then dragged underwater along the bottom of the ship, to be torn by sharp barnacles and nearly – sometimes actually – drowned.

America’s Mexican


$11.18


A simple audio rip of his 2007 HBO special, George Lopez’s America’s Mexican finds the comedian relaxed, loose, and free to drop more Spanglish than usual. Even if this might be off-putting to some of his non-Latino fans, a non-crossover and non-family friendly Lopez is a joy to behold, especially for the large Spanglish-friendly audience whose hysterical laughter is captured here. When he drops slang, it’s warmly received, causing him to be more interactive and at ease with his audience than he has been previously. This Latino who declares himself “old school” freely wanders through his stories of a poor childhood, stern parents, and times when simple pleasures were the best even though no one appreciated it. After all, drinking out of a hose still tasted like hose as Lopez points out and chasing down and then torturing house flies was all fun and games until Pops came around and pointed out how foolish you looked, perhaps with a rolled-up newspaper to the head. Disappointment with family extends to a grandma who has an extremely foul mouth, a tradition Lopez shares, something that might make fans of his more wholesome television show recoil in horror (and they probably won’t care for all the fart and diarrhea jokes either). This George Lopez goes to church with the stamp from the previous night’s nightclub on his hand and shows his appreciation for women’s bodies in the crudest manner possible. If that makes him sound like a jerk, his attitude that life is hard but still worth celebrating comes through loud and clear, bringing some charm to this edgy set. Other hot topics include Erik Estrada, immigration, and Britney Spears’ private parts, all covered in a bawdy, adult manner that just wouldn’t be as funny if Lopez was still playing by family television’s rules. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

Gone for Soldiers: A Novel of the Mexican War


$3.48


With his acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure, Jeff Shaara expanded upon his father’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War classic, The Killer Angels–ushering the reader through the poignant drama of this most bloody chapter in our history. Now, in Gone for Soldiers, Jeff Shaara carries us back fifteen years before that momentous conflict, when the Civil War’s most familiar names are fighting for another cause, junior officers marching under the same flag in an unfamiliar land, experiencing combat for the first time in the Mexican-American War. In March 1847, the U.S. Navy delivers eight thousand soldiers on the beaches of Vera Cruz. They are led by the army’s commanding general, Winfield Scott, a heroic veteran of the War of 1812, short tempered, vain, and nostalgic for the glories of his youth. At his right hand is Robert E. Lee, a forty-year-old engineer, a dignified, serious man who has never seen combat. Scott leads his troops against the imperious Mexican dictator, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana. Obsessed with glory and his place in history, Santa Ana arrogantly underestimates the will and the heart of Scott and his army. As the Americans fight their way inland, both sides understand that the inevitable final conflict will come at the gates and fortified walls of the ancient capital, Mexico City. Cut off from communication and their only supply line, the Americans learn about their enemy and themselves, as young men witness for the first time the horror of war. While Scott must weigh his own place in history, fighting what many consider a bully’s war, Lee the engineer becomes Lee the hero, the one man in Scott’s command whose extraordinary destiny as a soldier is clear. In vivid, brilliant prose that illuminates the dark psychology of soldiers and their commanders trapped behind enemy lines, Jeff Shaara brings to life the haunted personalities and magnificent backdrop, the familiar characters, the stunning triumphs and soul-crushing defeats of this fascinating, long-forgotten war. Gone for Soldiers is an extraordinary achievement that will remain with you long after the final page is turned. "From the Hardcover edition."

A clumsy criminal is put in a position where he not only has to save his own skin, but that of his girlfriend in this comedy with strong undercurrents of romance. Jerry Welbach (Brad Pitt) is a low-level Mafia mechanic whose ineptitude is countered by frequent (but unpredictable) bursts of dumb luck. Jerry’s girlfriend Samantha (Julia Roberts) wants him to get out of the business, and after his latest blunder lands capo Arnold Margolese (Gene Hackman) in jail, so does mid-level crime kingpin Bernie Nayman (Bob Balaban). But Bernie insists that Jerry do one last errand for the mob before they let him find employment elsewhere — he has to go to Mexico and recover a rare and very valuable pistol, which is said to be cursed. While Samantha objects to Jerry taking the assignment, he isn’t in much of a position to argue; Jerry heads south of the border, while Samantha, in a huff, sets out for Las Vegas. Once in Mexico, Jerry finds the pistol easily enough, but making his way back to the States proves to be an unexpected challenge. Meanwhile, Jerry’s superiors want insurance that he’ll return with the goods, so they hire Leroy (James Gandolfini), a hitman, to kidnap Samantha and hold her hostage until Jerry comes back. However, Samantha and Leroy quickly strike up a friendship, and she soon learns the gunman has a sensitive side he doesn’t show to the world — along with a few other secrets. The Mexican marked the first screen pairing for mega-stars Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt — though, given the film’s narrative arc, they play only a handful of scenes together. The film was directed by Gore Verbinski, who won awards for his work in commercials before breaking through with the quirky family comedy Mouse Hunt. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
