384 pages. Softcover. Brand new book. ALASKA. Exciting tale of the Alaska Scouts who played a key role in the Aleutian Campaign of World War II. This is more than a war story, although it portrays the Aleutian Campaign with historical accuracy. It is a story of early-20th century Alaska, and how a handful of extraordinary Alaskans coped with war. 36 photos. (Key Words: ).
Castner's Cutthroats, by the author's own words is a work of "faction", meaning that the story is based on true combat in the Aleutians against the Japanese invasion in 1942, but names were changed and events were made more exciting thru fictional exploits.
Colonel Castner's Alaska Scouts were men of grit. Outdoorsmen..woodsmen..hunters, trappers and the like. Strong, physical men that could survive -50 degrees below zero temperatures on bleak icescapes of the harsh enviornment Adak, Attu, Kiska, etc.
These special breeds used their abilities to seek intelligence about the Japanese installations by means of stealth. When push came to shove, they could fight at close range like tigers.
Excellent read for those of us who treasure war stories.
