The Black Cats were night raiders. They pounced on the enemy with engines cut back and slipped away as their torpedoes hissed into the sea. Their daring pilots had turned the slow, black-painted PBY Catalinas into the scourge of Japanese shipping in the South Pacific. Includes an Index. "This is truly an exciting tale of adventure, and the fact that it is all true makes it that much more absorbing." - Rear Admiral James O. Cobb, USN (Ret.), former commanding officer of Black Cat Squadron VP-91.
