The Bloody Aleutians

Despite common wisdom, World War II did come to American soil. In 1942, Japan laid siege to the Aleutians in the Alaskan north. The battle that was waged on these desolate islands demanded extraordinary sacrifices of the combatants, and it has long been overlooked in favor of admittedly larger and more strategically important engagements. But the story of THE BLOODY ALEUTIANS is, in many ways, more remarkable and compelling than many of the more familiar tales to emerge from the war.

HISTORY UNDERCOVER® proudly presents the first complete account of the Aleutian campaign on video. Survivors dramatically recount the terror and hardship of firefights with a fanatical enemy and the struggle simply to survive in some of the harshest conditions on earth, while scholars explain the strategic significance of the islands and the battles fought upon them. And extraordinary combat footage, some unseen for over 50 years, puts viewers in the heart of the bitter action of THE BLOODY ALEUTIANS.
