Nielson, Jonathan M. Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of "American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919"

The Second World War was to Alaska what the First World War had been to the nation. The essential reality of Alaska’s experience during World War II was the end of its isolation from the continental United States. As a consequence of the war, Alaska’s territorial era entered its twilight years, eclipsed by the dawn of statehood nineteen years later and driven largely by military imperatives. A further legacy was Alaska’s inevitably

Author:

Credentials: 

Author of *American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

The most significant military development to touch Alaska during the interwar years was the advent of air power, an innovation that completely altered Alaska's strategic position. Suddenly the world became smaller as areas once thought safely distant from potential enemies became vulnerable. Nowhere was this more evident than in the Pacific, whose countless islands became potential advanced air bases.

A History of Alaska, Volume I: From Old and New Frontiers to the Changing Strategic Balance

Author: 

Nielson, Jonathan M., Ph.D., University of California, Santa Barbara

Credentials: 

Author of American Historians in War and Peace: Patriotism, Diplomacy, and the Paris Peace Conference, 1918-1919

As a unique, distant geographical region of the United States, Alaska has evolved from military insignificance to high strategic priority in the 142 years since its purchase from Russia in 1867. The reasons for this dramatic shift derive from a correlation of geography, foreign policy, domestic politics, and military technology.
