"It is well that war is so terrible. We should grow too fond of it."
Robert E. Lee
I've always been intriqued with wars. I spent some time in the military, but not in battle. This article is about the "Forgotten War" waged on American soil, in Alaska.
The Forgotten War in Alaska
The only United States soil occupied during World War II, was Attu and Kiska Islands in Alaska. The Japanese felt that the United States might try to invade them from the islands! Total American troop casualties from these battles, were second only to the numbers at the battle of Iwo Jima.
