Abandoned Japanese Midget Submarines in America

by Michael Satterfield

I am a bit of a history nerd and while it is not car related, this was too cool not to share. Most people know that during WWII the Japanese occupied the Aleutian Islands of Attu and Kiska they also attacked the US Navy base at Dutch Harbor. What many don't know is that the Japanese not only took control of the island but built a Midget-Submarine base on Attu.  The US responded and during the US invasion of the island the Japanese sabotaged the remaining Subs abandoning the Type A Ko-hyoteki midget submarines in their dry docks, some of them remain there to this day.
