    rockum sockum wwII, the big one!

    This is one of the most informative and telling documentation I have ever read. I highly recomend the reading of this book. It would be a great addition to any historian's library. Every page is loaded with personal accounts of what it was really like to fight above the ANGRY SEA! Mr. Carey has captured the true essence of life on a PB4Y. If Spielberg could get a hold of this book, there would be a great movie made.

    A Wonderful Tribute

    This book is a tribute to the men who fought in World War II. Mr. Carey brings out the sacrifices these men went through by capturing the thoughts and emotions of those that served with U.S. Navy PB4Y Squadrons.
