      Larry Katz remarks:
      There are over three hundred interviews with Pearl Harbor Survivors.
      Dont know how many of us are left since he started this three years ago.
      Just thought I would pass this information on for some of you that would
      be interested in Pearl Harbor.
      Breakdown, Interviews with some Pearl Harbor Survivors,
      Interviews with different people all over the States regarding
      what they did and where they were at on Dec,7th,1941.
      I found it very good. Especially the chapter on me,
      I got bigger reveiws than George H.W.Bush.
      In fact he got about four pages, I got 9. Larry Katz.

      That's That.
      By Robert Frederick Honan

      printed by Lutheran Publishing House, Adelaide.
      118 pages, illustrated.
      ISBN 0 959699627
      The former Flight Lieutenants WWII memoirs.
      He flew in Catalina flying boats.
      Subtitled 'Memoirs of Wartime Service 1939-45'. Robert F Honan was born in
      South Australia in 1918 and joined the RAAF in 1941, after a stint in the 48th
      Battalion Militia. He gained his wings at Parafield SA flying DH60 Gypsy Moths
      and DH82 Tiger Moths, and then advanced training in Avro Ansons at Mallala SA
      and seaplane conversion at Rathmines flying Sikorsky Kingfishers. After
      becoming a 2nd pilot on PBY Catalina flying boats he was posted to 11 Squadron
      based at Cairns, Qld. From here long raids were flown (some over 20 hours
      flying time) to attack Japanese shipping and installations in the islands to
      the north of Australia. Laying magnetic mines in enemy held harbours, secret
      long range recon missions from Dutch New Guinea (Irian Jaya) as well as anti-
      submarine patrols and convoy protection. Later detachments were sent to Darwin
      NT to attack targets on Java, the Halmaheras, Irian Jaya including one mission
      to Sourabaya, Java which, with refuelling stops, took 48 hours. On completion
      of his tour in 1944 Honan flew to the US where he ferried PBYs back to
      Australia and then became an instructor at RAAF Bairnsdale.

      Not just a diary Bob Honan tells his story, and covers all the various stages
      experienced by him, and 1000s of others, until the war was over. The savagery
      of the tropical weather which he flew in is bought out along with the intensity
      of Japanese resistance when over the target and the tiredness in body and mind
      that accumulated in the men from the long exhausting flights.

      "Through the Back Doors of the World in a Ship That Had Wings"
      Biography of William M. Masland By Anthony L. Vallillo Jr.
      ISBN: 053305818X
      Publisher: Vantage Press, 1984/85
      Book features: Hardback, 361 pages, 7� - 9� tall
      This book describes the author's experiences with flying boats.
      The author made the first crossing of the Pacific to China in October 1936.
      Just months later, in July 1937, he navigated for the first of Pan Am's
      crossings of the world's most violent ocean, the Atlantic.
      Then came a stint in command along the Brazilian coast, based in Rio,
      and finally a return to New York to fly the biggest and best of the flying
      boats, throughout the war and throughout the world.
      A fascinating aviation memoir. A few b/w photos. Illustrated endpapers.
      Bill Masland was a pioneer Pan American pilot, and this is his personal memoir
      of roughly the first half of his flying career, the flying boat era of the
      Pan Am Clippers.
      We follow Masland through U.S. Navy flight training between the wars,
      when it was extremely difficult to secure a flying billet.
      Ultimately hired by Andre Priester, Pan Am's technical genius and operations
      guru, Bill has to qualify through the ranks, first as a mechanic, then as
      radio operator, navigator, flight engineer, and finally pilot.
      The book is written in a style worthy of Ernest K. Gann; and indeed,
      this book is to Pan American what Fate is the Hunter is to American Airlines --
      a rare and compelling glimpse into a truly pioneering and still
      romantic time in aviation.

      Dr. Feinberg
      Based on Dr. Feinberg�s two-year stint (1944-45) as a naval officer on the
      island of Adak in the Aleutians. In this darkly humorous novel,
      Feinberg turns a sardonic eye on the foibles of military life
      while he memorializes the quiet heroism of some of the men who were
      stationed on one of the bleakest military outposts of World War II.
