70 years ago this month, the Battle of Attu raged in Alaska

The Battle of Attu, often dismissed or forgotten, was remarkable in many ways. More men were killed in action on Attu than at Pearl Harbor: at least 2,350 Japanese -- plus those never accounted for -- and 549 Americans; 1,148 Americans were wounded and 2,100 listed as casualties due to cold and shell shock. How many Americans died as a result of injuries in the weeks after the battle is uncertain, but some say it was equal to or greater than the battlefield deaths.
