Aleutian World War II National Historic Area
It will be of interest to anyone who has spent time in the Aleutian Islands to be put in contact with Rachel Mason, Program Manager, Aleutian World War II Historic Area.  At a minimum, one can receive a special calendar each year with historical information and notes of interest woven into each month.  Anyone who is interested should contact Rachel at (907) 644-3472 or by email at rachel_mason@nps.gov
The program is administered by the National Park Service and everything arrives free of charge.  A copy of "Battle of Attu" came out a little over a year ago and details that horrific battle wherein the Japanese chose death over surrender.  Copies would still be available upon request.
Another great book is "Attu Boy."  It is authored by an Aleut who was among those indigenous personnel who were taken from Attu by the Japanese in 1942 and spent the remainder of the war years interred on Hokkaido.  That one is no longer available free but can be purchased off Amazon.  Very enlightening saga of what  happened to a people almost forgotten.
Even if one has never been to the Aleutian Islands, the information will prove interesting.
