Up to the mid 19th century, the French, British and Americans engaged in raiding.
This particular type of naval warfare involved hiring sailors who were not soldiers and offering them the possibility of launching attacks on the enemy on behalf of their government. Thanks to shipowners who supplied vessels, provisions and weapons, privateers served their country, capturing ships and even receiving a share of the profits from the sale of loot seized from the enemy.
