Synopsis: The Captain from Connecticut is the definitive biography of the man who became a national hero as the commander of the USS Constitution in her dramatic victory over HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812. While Isaac Hull's outstanding seamanship was in evidence throughout his career, Maloney makes the case that it is ironic that he is remembered for his tactical prowess in this famous naval battle, because he was actually the most pacific of men.

Review: "I am very impressed with this study and believe that it will not be surpassed in its detailed portrait of hull and the navy he served. One learns as much about the challenges of navy life for hull's family as about the man himself, and peaceful times are given at least equal weight with periods of warfare. The book is a fine modern contribution to naval scholarship." --William S. Dudley, Head, Historical Research Branch, U.S. Naval Historical"
