The Privateer was a heavily armed (6-twin .50 cal. machine gun turrets) four-engine, long range, land-based, patrol bomber developed from the famous B-24/PB4Y-1 Liberator. It was responsible for sinking over 550 Japanese ships and shooting down almost 50 enemy aircraft. It usually operated alone but sometimes with a second Privateer on its missions lasting up to 11-12 hours at a time.

"This is one of the best and most informative books of the Naval Fighter Series I have read. It is very well done and covers this aircraft and the squadrons that flew it very well. It does not have a tailhook, but I highly recommend it to all aviation historians." -- Cdr. Doug Siegfried, USN (ret.) The Hook, Winter 2012, Page 66
