World War II Beach Landing

This is a photograph of the landing of American troops on Attu, Aleutian Islands in World War II. Landing boats are transporting soldiers and their weapons onto the beach at Massacre Bay. It was on this day in 1943 that American forces secured the Aleutian island of Attu from the Japanese during World War II.


  1. Thanks for posting this.

    The WWII Aleutian campaign is all but forgotten now.

    My father was there from Aug 1942 till Dec. 1944.

  2. That's about the time frame my father was there. His memory's almost gone now, so I'm looking for info to fill in the blanks. Thanks for posting the photo.
