Where the Williwaw Blows
The Aleutian Islands -- World War II
Leonard Feinberg          Where the Williwaw Blows is based on Feinberg’s 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.
