    schema:description "Boarding, assaulting, and securing a pirate-occupied ship on the high seas can be a deadly operation & mdash;especially when it comes to the pirates of yore, who have been plying their trade much the same way for centuries. Gaining pre-op intel on such villains as Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and One-Eyed Willie also represents a special challenge, as does using modern weaponry against their formidable array of cannons, cutlasses, muskets, pistols, and pikes. For these reasons and more, war against pirates requires well-trained sailors who can respond to rapidlychanging situations. This exclusive field manual details the essential philosophy and combat skills at the core of our Navy & rsquo;s ongoing efforts to take out eye-patched, peg-legged, and hooked-hand buccaneers. Distributed to all sailors, U.S. Navy Pirate Combat Skills includes illustrations throughout. It covers:Mission Preparation & bull; Pirate Psychological Operations, or PiPsyOps & bull; On-Deck Hand-to-Hand and Hand-to-Hook Combat & bull; Pirate Tracking & bull; Booby Traps and Other Pirate Weaponry & bull; Subsurface and Surface Assaults & bull; Daring Airborne Assaults & bull; Crow & rsquo;s-Nest Parachute Landings & bull; Underwater Demolitions & bull; Movement on Deck & bull; Pirate Sniper Positions and Techniques & bull; Escaping Pirate Captivity."@en ;
