The historical nights' entertainment by Rafael Sabatini( Book )
73 editions published between 1917 and 2013 in English and held by 813 libraries worldwide
In approaching The historical nights' entertainment I set myself the task of reconstructing, in the fullest possible detail and with all the colour available from surviving records, a group of more or less famous events. I would select for my purpose those which were in themselves bizarre and resulting from the interplay of human passions, and whilst relating each of these events in the form of a story, I would compel that story scrupulously to follow the actual, recorded facts without owing anything to fiction, and I would draw upon my imagination, if at all, merely as one might employ colour to fill in the outlines which history leaves grey, taking care that my colour should be as true to nature as possible

A powerful story of the dark side of religion and one man's triumph over a skewed and twisted upbringing."--(p.4) of cover

He takes with him another condemned young man who is pious and cowardly. For eighteen years Crispin Galliard has numbed his feelings in strong water and debauchery, ever since his family was brutally murdered and his castle stolen by ruthless criminals. Soon he learns that the young man on the run with him is his ticket to vengeance. Kenneth Stewart is to marry the daughter of his family's murderer. The two escapees set out for Galliard's former castle, young Stewart thinking of love, and the tavern knight of murder and retribution."

The Lion's Skin is a romp through the upper classes during a time of political turmoil. Justin Caryll is the illegitimate son of the Earl of Ostermore who has been raised in France by a friend of his mother's, Sir Richard Everard. Caryll is honorable, intelligent, educated, well-bred, short, the typical, "perfect" Sabatini hero. Lord Ostermore is self-centered and cowardly, but not the main antagonist. That is left to his son, Viscount Rotherby, who is just as vain and egotistical as his father, but whose primary character flaws are that he has no sense of honor and is a bully. Caryll and Rotherby meet when Caryll stops a mock wedding Rotherby has set up to dishonor Ostermore's ward
The Sea Hawk by Michael Curtiz( visu )
8 editions published between 1986 and 2006 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
Captain Geoffrey Thorpe is the terror of the Spanish Main, striking crippling blows against the oppressive Spanish war machine, freeing English slaves from the galley ships and filling England's coffers with Spanish gold--with the tacit approval of England's Queen Elizabeth I. When the dashing Thorpe raids and sinks a diplomatic vessel bringing ambassador Don José Alvarez de Cordoba and his beautiful niece Dona Maria to England, he's gentlemanly enough to deliver them safely onto English shores--along with the galley full of wrongfully imprisoned slaves. Smarting from this insult, Don Alvarez conspires with the duplicitous Lord Wolfingham to stop Thorpe and smash the Sea Hawks: the small fleet of privateers that stands between England and King Philip of Spain's thirst for global domination!
