The Life of Michael De Ruyter
Written by William R. Rang
Called the ‘greatest Dutch Admiral’, Michael De Ruyter (1607 - 1676) was feared by his enemies and loved by his men for his fatherly approach to life. Not only that, he continues to be revered by Hungarians for his bold efforts to gain the freedom of dozens of pastors from that country who had been enslaved as rowers on Spanish galleons.
Admiral De Ruyter has been held up as an example for his Christian compassion and piety, making his biography an even more fascinating story. De Ruyter had many adventures as a cabin-boy, captain, pirate-hunter and admiral. Dutch youths still are taught history lessons featuring De Ruyter. Ages 10 and up.
