"We learn from history that we do not learn from history" 
                                                                                                                   Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Recently, I realized that some of my archive digging results might be worthy of being known by a wider community of people rather than just a close circle of friends and pen pals. Some facts I've uncovered are far more interesting than just trivia, and others are widely unknown, yet important events from seventy-plus years ago.


With that in mind, I created this website for those interested in the history of WWII in the Northern Pacific. Without attempt of competing with existing successful internet forums on the subject of WWII, I want to build an online resource for researchers, historians, and modelers alike.  

Starting in English and Russian, I am looking forward to attract the attention of Japanese students to the history of WWII, whose participation in the blog will be warmly welcomed.
 

         Welcome to the North Pacific Skies!
