Barbary pirates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (317 words)
Their stronghold was along the stretch of northern Africa known as the Barbary Coast (a medieval term for the Maghreb after its Berber inhabitants), although their predation was said to extend as far north as Iceland, and south along West Africa's Atlantic seaboard.
The United States Marine Corps actions in these wars led to the line, "to the shores of Tripoli" in the opening of the "Marine Hymn".
Barbary pirates appear in a number of famous novels, including Robinson Crusoe, The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, The Algerine Captive by Royall Tyler, Master and Commander by Patrick O'Brian and the Baroque Cycle by Neal Stephenson.
