Where the Williwaw Blows
The Aleutian Islands -- World War II

Leonard Feinberg

Announcing a new novel about Adak:

Where the Williwaw Blows by Leonard Feinberg, ISBN 0-9710609-8-3, $16.95.

Where the Williwaw Blows is based on Feinbergís two-year stint (1944-45) as a naval officer on the island of Adak in the Aleutians. In this darkly humorous novel, Feinberg turns a sardonic eye on the foibles of military life while he memorializes the quiet heroism of some of the men who were stationed on one of the bleakest military outposts of World War II.
