World War II & the Aleutian Islands

When we think of World War II, we often think of the battles fought in Europe and in Japan, of Pearl Harbor, of the battles in the Philippines, and of the infamous picture of the flag raising. The library has received a book entitled The Cultural Landscape of the World War II Battlefield of Kiska, Aleutian Islands. It's a very detailed study of the war effort there and includes sections on Kiska itself and on the Japanese and American/Canadian bases. You'll find this study in government documets at I 29.2:K 64.
