Recommended Posts

Great find. I was vaguely aware of the Aleutians campaign, but that video has definitely motivated me to learn more.

Its great that historians are working on these things.

The Aleutians were often referred to by Captain Binghamton in McHale's Navy as the place that McHale and his motley crew would be sent to to correct their lack of discipline.

Was that the pilot of the A6M they recovered and exploited?

Yes, Tadayoshi Koga. There is an excellent book on this by Jim Rearden. Title is "Koga's Zero." "The Fighter that Changed the World".
