    You probably already know of it, but there is a book on the Aleutian campaign that may or may not be useful:

    The Thousand-Mile War: World War II in Alaska and the Aleutians
    by Brian Garfield

    Hi to All -

    Thank you for all information.

    Would have like to ask you about the books, as i'm in the process to buy at one:

    The Aleutian Warriors by John Haile Cloe (1992) or
    The Thousand-Mile War: World War II in Alaska and the Aleutians
    by Brian Garfield

    which one do you consider as the best to me . (i'm french, I can read english but if there are more pictures from planes in one than the other, it would be better to achieve a model kit...)

    Thanks again
    Raphael

    I just ordered Thousand-Mile War from Amazon, but it sometimes takes a while for books to get across the Pacific... :|
