ALEUTIAN FURY

A Story of World War II at Sea in the Aleutian Islands

Battling the Japanese off Adak and Attu

by
Wm. J. Veigele

Author of the popular Navy books PC Patrol Craft of World War II and Sea Bag of Memories



     Battling the worst weather in the world sixty five young men crowded on a small U. S. Navy ship combat Japanese in the Aleutian and Kurile Islands of the North Pacific and Bering Sea. Fifty foot seas and hundred knot winds lash the ship and its crew as they confront the enemy. Pete Charleson, an enlisted man, and Gordon Scorer, an officer, nurture their hatred for each other and vie for the same girl they left in Portland, Oregon. The tragedies of war eventually change their hatred to respect. At the end of the war Pete returns to the States for the girl he loves but finds instead a surprise that changes his life.

The story illustrates the fear, danger, camaraderie, and fun shared by the young men. It is laced with the raw and boisterous humor known to sailors and that shows what life was like aboard a small U. S. Navy ship during World War II.



God I could get shot for that.” Shrieking like demons, wind gusts flung white spray from their peaks. “TORPEDO! STARBOARD BEAM!.”
