Kiska. Jap Threat to Vlaska and I'nitnl Stales

formidable military establishments on the island with a view to future operations against Dutch Harbor, our
naval base in the Alaskan area, and against Alaska itself. Proximity of the major enemy base at Paramo
shiro makes it possible for Kiska to be reinforced with comparative ease.
