I had mentioned wanting to start putting together information an Aleutian Campaign OOB quite a while ago. I had been in the process of trying to compile lists of the forces present, and had made pretty good headway before being sidetracked by more pressing issues for quite sometime. I'm going to try devote some time towards getting more done. In the meantime, I'm going to use this as an anchor post and start adding in the stuff that I've already accumulated. If any body would like to help out, it'd be greatly appreciated! It really is a fascinating campaign, and very much overlooked.
