The PBY Catalina was deadly in its primary role as a submarine hunter, and the scourge of the Imperial Japanese Navy's submarine force. Its amphibious ability made the aircraft well suited to air-sea rescue, and thousands of Allied airmen were saved from a watery grave by PBY crews.
Using personal interviews, war diaries and combat reports combined with original Japanese records and books, Louis B Dorny provides a view on the role of the Catalina from both side of the war. Illustrated with over 80 photographs and colour profiles detailing aircraft markings, this is the definitive history of an insight into the PBY's use by the US Navy and Allied forces in the Pacific during World War 2.
Excellent condition. See photos, this is the actual book, not a stock shot.
