From the book's Preface:

The romantic curiosity which attaches to the waters of the
Caribbean has to some degree obsured the truth that the
records of occasions within the Caribbean through the 16th,
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are an essential
part of the historical past of britain and of the yankee
colonies. Battles fought within the Caribbean Sea have been
often a tremendous think about making peace or warfare in
Europe.

Not simply have been settlements validated within the West
Indies and within the Spanish major a century ahead of
those in North the US, yet for 3 hundred years the
struggles of the eu countries for the keep watch over of the
commerce of this quarter had an instantaneous impact upon the
material, political, and racial improvement of the North
American colonies.

During the final zone of the 16th century, Spain
was the most powerful of eu powers. within the New
World, Spanish rule was once essentially absolute from Labrador
to the Rio de los angeles Plata at the Atlantic aspect and from the
Isthmus south at the western coast of South the United States ;
in truth a Papal supply had divided the yankee continent
between Portugal and Spain. The conceited declare of the
Spanish Crown used to be contested simply via a small French
settlement at the St. Lawrence and in Labrador via
Frobisher's event. the tale of the nice seamen
of Elizabeth's reign - Drake, Hawkins and Frobisher -
is virtually the historical past of the britain in their day; the
battles they fought made the settlements in Virginia and
Massachusetts attainable.

Of no much less impression within the improvement of the English
colonial settlements have been the naval undertakings of Sir
Henry Morgan within the 17th, and of Admiral Vernon
and Admiral Rodney within the eighteenth century.

It was once the ultimate supremacy of British keep an eye on of the
Caribbean Sea which made the Rio Grande the northern
boundary of Latin the US rather than the Potomac.

The monographs that have been right here introduced jointly
were written as a contributio to the higher figuring out
of West Indian heritage; these on Drake and at the French
Expedition to Cartagena have been published a few years in the past in
an historic book in the USA; that on Vernon
appeared in "Hispania" (London) and in Spanish within the
Boletin de Historia y Antiquedades de l. a. Academia
Nacional de Historia (Bogota).

All of those were made the topic of revision
and extension. The bills of Morgan and Rodney have
not been formerly released.
