Originally intended as little more than a diversion from the planned capture of Midway, the Japanese occupation of American territory in Alaska provoked a lengthy, determined response. For fifteen months Japanese and Allied forces struggled against each other and the incredible weather of the North Pacific and its rocky islands.
This revised and expanded edition of Garfield's 1969 book (at that time the first full-length history of the campaign) includes a complete account of the air-land-sea action from the air raid on Dutch Harbor to the US-Canadian invasion of deserted Kiska. Well-researched, well-written, and well-illustrated.
