A reference volume bound for—and bound for—frankly utilitarian use by soldierly scholar historians and history-minded scholarly soldiers. The backgrounds, careers, and fates of 27 naval captains from the Revolutionary War are covered—the two most familiar names being Benedict Arnold and John Paul Jones. McManemin (1923 - 2010) published many volumes on U.S. naval history, covering the Revolutionary period and beyond.
