On May 11th, 1943 American forces invade Attu, an island apart of the Aleutian island chain off of the coast of Alaska. The goal of the American forces was to expel the Japanese forces that had landed on the island unopposed almost a year earlier.  After two weeks of nasty, cold, bitter fighting, the Japanese had been wiped out.
