Deadliest catch is the tv show. The Forgotten Battle is the Aleutian Island Campaign when the Japanese invaded America in WWII. It was overshadowed by the Guadalcanal campaign. If memory serves me correct, the island is Adak.

The tv show gives a pretty good feel for it, so after 1year of fishing there in that hell, 3 broken ribs, 1 chipped tooth, and several years of joint pain later, l am a confirmed fair weather sailor. If there ain't palm trees, it ain't for me, yet l live in Norway. Ah, ain't love grand.
