From the back cover:
"The Captain from Connecticut is the first definitive biography of he man who became a national hero when he commanded USS Constitution in the dramatic victory over HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812. Isaac Hull's outstanding seamanship was in evidence throughout his career, but Maloney points out that Hull was actually the most pacific of men, and it is ironic that he is remembered for his tactical prowess during one naval battle. The famed battle against Guerriere is skillfully recounted with the verve and detailed attention that characterize the author's approach to her subject. Drawing extensively on Hull's correspondence and on contemporary naval records, she skillfully reconstructs Hull's postwar life against the turbulent years of the first half of the nineteenth century."
