From the 12th of April to the 30th of April 1943, the United States forces in the Aleutian island chain attacked the Japanese that were occupying the islands of Kiska and Attu. P-40's, P-38's, B-25's and B-24's all participated in the attacks. The Japanese hastily defended the islands they had taken. In this snapshot, we will re-create an attack by the American forces on Japanese bases and ports on the island of Kiska.
