I have always had an interest in these aircraft, since reading an account of the battle of Midway in elementary school. The Catalina flew on every part of the globe and was notably strong and reliable. It was tasked with generally non-glamorous jobs, and saved lives (frequently in the teeth of enemy gunfire). Well written and gives solid coverage of what this plane did over the course of WW2. ( )
