My favorite history book I've read to date would have to be The Pirate Coast by Richard Zacks. He does an excellent job of telling how the Americans faced off against the Barbary Pirates in a story that is purely captivating. I would love to see it made into a movie, but I know Hollywood would ruin it.

Also pays homage to the first eight Marines sent on the mission where the "shores of Tripoli..." gains relevance.
