The Forgotten Fighters

Issue Number: 5033

In 1942 the Japanese Northern Army invaded American soil, capturing the island of Attu, off the coast of Alaska. For nineteen days, America battled against Japan in the only land battle of World War Two fought on American territory.

Inspired by true events, Sergeant Bill Johnson leads an American Infantry Division into the mountains of Attu, guided by an Aleutian woman, to retake the island from the Japanese. But, faced with freezing Arctic conditions and the relentless Colonel Yamasaki, Johnson does not know if his men are prepared for the horrors facing them.
