The Forgotten War

A Pictorial History of World War II in Alaska and Northwestern Canada

by Stan Cohen

In most combat theaters of the Second World War the combatants had to fight only each other. In Alaska and northwestern Canada, however, they also did battle with the weather, the wilderness and boredom. The remote territory was probably the war’s least-known and least-publicized combat zone. Most of those who served there had never seen anything like it before, nor would they ever want to see it again.
