Part of a multi-volume series, this is not a straightforward history but an assortment of photographs, first-person stories, newspaper articles, and other miscellanea on the Second World War in Alaska and the Canadian northwest. Things included are a 1944 dinner menu for the Baranof Hotel in Juneau; an interview with Attu schoolteacher Etta Jones (she was treated well in internment in Japan, but her weather observer husband was killed and all the Attu natives were deported); a letter from novelist Dashiel Hammet, who was stationed on Adak; various accounts of construction of the Alaska Highway and the CANOL pipeline; an interview with a Russian-speaking American meteorologist assigned to the Lend-Lease ferry program; an account of the Japanese evacuation of Kiska, facilitated by a radar set salvaged from the sunken British battleship Prince of Wales; wartime documents relating to the salvage of a Zero fighter from Akutan island; an official warning to female workers that they were not to have men in their barracks after midnight; and accounts of air and naval raids on Paramushiru, the main Japanese base in the Kurile Islands.

Interesting, sometimes sad, sometimes amusing. But you definitely need a more conventional history of the Aleutian campaign first to understand what’s going on.
