Black Cat Raiders of WWII by Richard C. Knott (Bluejacket Books) is a softcover book published in 1981, 198 pages in length and 6.0 x 8.9 inches in size. Illustrated with more than sixty photographs and detailed drawings.

Thanks to the PBY's daring pilots and their effective tactics, the slow outdated Catalina patrol bombers were the scourge of Japanese shipping in the South Pacific during World War II. Painted black and hunting at night, the Black Cats (as they were called) sank or disabled hundreds of thousands of tons of cargo vessels, troop transports, and warships. Curiously, few outside the naval aviation community had heard about their exploits until the publication of this testimonial to their magnificent performance. The author, an experienced flying boat pilot, has pieced together the fascinating story from the reminiscences of the men who flew the long, arduous missions and from official navy records. Capt. Richard C. Knott tells an inspiring tale of brave men in machines ill-designed for combat that wreaked havoc on a dangerous and merciless adversary. This is a book to be savored by those who like their adventure stories to ring true.
