One Of The Last WWII Battlegrounds Is Right Here In Alaska And It’s So Worth A Visit

The Aleutian Islands stretch into the sea eastward from mainland Alaska with the Bering Sea to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. These fascinating islands were the site of the only WWII Battleground on U.S. soil. The Japanese invaded and held the Aleutian Islands of Kiska and Attu, where the unforgiving cold and relentless rain kept the troops on both sides frozen and struggling through the difficult conditions. The WWII history of the area is very interesting and the scenery is divine. Visit Adak for a unique and amazing adventure in Alaska.
