Summary

When young dive-bomber pilot is dismissed for reckless behavior, he’s reassigned to the Black Cat squadron as the co-pilot of a giant Catalina seaplane, The Sea Witch. He’s thrown into a whole new world, where a Catalina carries five tons of bombs, a half-dozen machine guns, and a crew that walks a fine line between valor and a death wish.

A daring rescue mission forces them deep into enemy territory, where the crew of the Sea Witch must band together as never before. Each man will soon find out what he’s made of... and not everyone will make it back alive.

This Review Needs a Title...So, I

This is the story of a single flight undertaken in a Catalina seaplane during the second World War. This tale reminds us of the despair of warfare at the individual level. The way the story jumps from one first-person narrative to another is distracting. Fun, quick read any way.

Not The Three Novellas Promised

Any additional comments?

The title page for this listing says "Three Novellas", which suggests that it includes all three shorty stories from the printed book. But my download only included "The Sea Witch". The fact that the next most popular downloads for this listing are the other other short stories included in the book indicates that other people are running into this problem. I hope they didn't pay extra for getting what they should have gotten in the original download.

Way too short

Any additional comments?

I thought this was way too short of a story. I felt there could have been so much more put into this story and made it a much better story

Great insight into the soldiers mind set & history

I enjoyed the book, it was entertaining but it was too short and lacked entertaining diversions with the ladies. Which would have been very natural with the World War II setting.
