It's 1944 - An Official Film from The War Department...from the Signal Corps of the US Military comes this old film of the need for and the construction of The Alaska Highway.

Initially, because of the nearness of Japan and the ease with which they could land in Alaska more or less unopposed and in theory strike into the heart of the USA....so, they said we have to create an infrastructure in the wilderness in order to stop 'em...apparently, they even used coloured people and white troops (05:37)

Not to be confused with a recent similar post 'Macks to the Arctic' (a different filum - that was building the DEW Line)

Anyway, this is a 35 minute time investment and is of little to no use whatsoever to a 15 second TikTuk merchant so click wisely now - always practice safe software.
