Alutian Islands Campaign

Buckner’s Ode to Theobald In far Alaska’s icy spray, I stand beside my binnacle And scan the waters through the fog for fear some rocky pinnacle Projecting from unfathomed depths may break my hull asunder And place my name upon the list of those who made a blunder. The Bering Sea is not for me nor for my Fleet Headquarters. In mortal dread I look ahead in wild Aleutian waters Where hidden reefs and williwaws and terrifying critters Unnerve me quite with woeful fright and give me fits and jitters. violent squalls that blows in near-polar latitudes
