Whilst the book covers PBY operations undertaken by all the allied forces all over the globe, there is a heavy emphasis on the south west Pacific theatre of the war. This does not diminish the book's two predominant themes: 1) the PBY Catalina was a very robust aircraft that performed far beyond its original design specifications; and, 2) the men who operated these aircraft in a time of conflict were very capable people whom were devoted to a cause.
It is a great read.
