The PBY was the US Navy's primary flying boat and amphibian throughout WW II. It saw service in every theater & was flown by all US service and a number of foreign countries. PBY's continued to serve long after the war in many roles, from rescue to firefighting.
A number of books record the use of Catalina's by the US Navy in WWII. This well documented book shows that many of our allies also used this patrol seaplane effectively, including Great Britain, Norway, & Canada for a variety of vital combat missions. The author believes the Catalinas' main contribution was not in patrolling but in anti-submarine warfare. 248 PAGES.
