Despite common wisdom,
World War II did come to American soil. In 1942, Japan
laid siege to the Aleutians in the Alaskan north. The
battle that was waged on these desolate islands
demanded extraordinary sacrifices of the combatants,
and it has long been overlooked in favor of admittedly
larger and more strategically important engagements.
But the story of THE BLOODY ALEUTIANS is, in many
ways, more remarkable and compelling than many of the
more familiar tales to emerge from the war.
