An insightful informational story about a part of WW II I was totally unfamiliar with. I have a friend whose Father was at Attu and was wounded. He never spoke in any detail about his experiences to his family. I had done some quick research on his Father's military enlistment and the 7th Division to which he was assigned, so knew of the deception (even the soldiers didn't know where they were going). The 39th Infantry, of which he was attached, is mentioned several times in the course of the book--about their training as well as their participation in the American landing and ensuing battles on Attu. Although his Company was not specifically mentioned, he was there! All I knew about Attu came from that quick research and my interest was piqued. I didn't know much of anything about the Aleutian Islands and the Japanese invasion, the HELL our soldiers went through in that cold and forsaken place, the native Indians (Aleuts) and missionary that were displaced by the Japanese, etc. I couldn't put the book down. Whether you have a personal connection to this part of WW II or not, you must read this cover to cover. The author's research enables you to understand what the Japanese culture and military were thinking from the time of their loss at Midway forward as well as the American military hierarchy and the politics involved. The desperate final attack by the Japanese and the lives lost on both sides were heartbreaking.....what wars are all about at the personal level. This was a quick read, and yes, there are typos and grammatical errors, but it doesn't diminish the story and information presented. My friend is now reading the book and I have bought 2 more copies to give to his sons so that they can know and understand this part of their Grandfather's service during WW II. This book has helped fill in a gap in my friend's family story. Men of the Invisible War

Joe Kotvas has put more than 25 years worth of research into compiling this easy-to-read narrative of actual events during World War II. For a historical buff, there is a wealth of new information with names, dates and places of events in the Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska, all clearly catalogued for easy reference. For the casual reader, the story flows like a suspense novel, with colorful character descriptions and imaginative dialogue. Kotvas has a flair for descriptive commentary built on personal interviews and factual accounting. An updated perspective on the Japanese and American conflict in this period is crystalized in a compelling story that demands a sequel, which is said to already be in the works. This is a two thumbs up, four and a half star read that should be added to the personal library of scholars and private citizens alike who seek to gain insight from American history.

I did not personally read the book but gave them as gifts to my husband's children. He was stationed in the Aleutian Islands during WWII and not very many people realize the Japanese actually landed on American soil. American soldiers had no housing, no food, improper clothing and many other things that they should have been backed up with.

Listening to my husband's story of survival during that period in his life was unimaginable to the average person. You rarely see footage of what happened there during the fighting in the 70 degree below zero weather, most of the programming on television is about the Pacific and European invasions, which were equally as horrible.

Although I am not drawn to books about military history, I found this story extremely captivating. The emphasis is placed more on a human element and left me thinking how each of us, regardless of nationality, race, religion or political views, is in essence the same: want of family, friends and a modicum of peace and happiness within our lives. War does not alter that hope, only diverting the focus for a short time. The grief of loss is equally felt on either side. The anguish is real. This story needs to be read, told and repeated on an educational and national level. Our diversity is not so different. "The face of war never changes no matter where you go."

Joe Kotvas brings to life an amazing story that I am truly ashamed to say I didn't know ever happened. I thought I had heard it all about WWII. It is an great story full of tragedy, heroism and valor. Thanks to Joe, the story of valiant Americans and Japanese will never be forgotten. This book can instantly become a hit movie and I wish it would. The story needs to get out and I thankful Joe took the time to tell it. After 25 years of research, it is thoroughly researched and vetted. I am glad I came across it. It is worth buying and putting it in your collection. If you are a war buff, its a must have.

I heard about this book recently and ordered a copy. It arrived 2 days ago and I couldn't put it down until I finished reading it. That was today. This book is all about warfare, up close and very personal. The author has conducted interviews with generals & admirals and privates & sgts. on both sides. The individual stories related are very emotional. Most people don't know that a portion of WW II was fought on United States soil. If you have served in a combat zone, you will relate. It has excellent attention to detail.
Men of the Invisible War is a great book.
