two of castners cutthroats get ready to attak a japanese machine gun crew.
About this creation
in 1942 two of alaskas aleutian islands (attu and kiska) were invaded by japanese forces. the terain of these islands were very difficult to overcome for american forces. Colonel lawrence caster thought of the idea of recruting alaskan natives, hunters, trappers, to make up a unit to act as scouts for the US army. on the island of attu they stalked and killed japanese snipers and machine gun crews. Because of these 64 men that made up castners cutthroats the american army had an edge in the battle of th aleutian islands.
