Another Jump on the Great Circle toTokio
The Yanks were soon ready for any Jap
2|e annoyance after their occupation of
juu Amchifka. This anti-aircraft gun, its
fgjjjj wheels axle-deep, has a firm stance in the
jPjg island mud.
pOR the Japs on Kiska Island—
and less immediately for their
brethren in the Japanese home
land—it was news when the Yanks
moved onto Amchitka Island last
winter. The occupation, as only
recently disclosed with these pic
tures, bases American bombers
not quite 70 miles from Kiska—
and about 1,800 from Tokio.
Kiska since has reaped a harvest **
of bombs that are only a prelude,
authorities soy, to the day of
definitely driving the Japs out of
the Aleutians. Here are some
scenes of the unopposed occupa
tion of Amchitka, a joint Army
Navy operation, and of the base
as early set up in the gumbo mud
of that bleak isle of the Rat group
of the Aleutians.
Landing boats bring the second wave of occupation forces
into Amchitka's Constantine Harbor. Transports stand offshore
to the right and on the headland in the background tents already
dot the rolling terrain.

Ivan got Jiis first Jeep
j. from j
Almost 2 years ago Russia bought 1000 of these amazing battle broncos
from American Bantam for the valiant Red Army
BACK in I940 the sensational Bantam-built
Jeep hit the headlines — a new typically
American invention which has been called our
country's "main contribution to modern war."
Russia's smart military men watched this hill
climbing ditch leaping little battle bronco
gallop through its paces, quickly saw its value
as a fighting weapon on their vast almost
roadless defense lines. In October f94l they
bought 1000 American Bantam built Jeeps,
shipped them home for their war against Hitler
— Ivan the terrible Nazi - killer got a steel
horse he could ride to Victory. Remember the
inventive engineering behind the American
Bantam name is something it pays you to
look for after the war on products you want.
