When the fighting was finally over (17August 1943), exhausted Allied troops pulled themselves out of their dank foxholes, dazed and wet, to look around them and count up the casualties. As Tokyo Rose had warned them, they were in for a dreadful surprise. There were 28 dead American soldiers, four dead Canadians, and over 50 wounded Allied soldiers. There were no Japanese. Americans and Canadians had only been shooting each other.

My brother went in with the Canadian contingent on Kiska.He took quite a few photos (Against regulations). When he died in '92, I turned all the photos over to the Signal Corps Museum at CFB Kingston, Ontario, Canada. FYI.
