The Forgotten War
I was born in 1943. My father was in the Navy and stationed in the Aleutians. A friend recommended I read The Thousand-Mile War. I did not know about the war in Alaska and the Aleutians including Japan's occupation. For me it was the forgotten war and even my mom and dad had not told me much about what happened. This book has opened new discussions with my parents who are both still living. The book has helped me to appreciate the "Greatest Generation" even more than before. The research done to write this book is impressive and yet it reads like a movie script.
