Review: Non-fiction account of the little-known Japanese invasion of Alaska's Aleutian Islands during World War II. This is a very readable account of the events leading up to the attacks; the first-person accounts detail the effects of the Japanese occupation and the American campaign to oust and defeat the Japanese. Very interesting. Source notes and index included.
