Volume 7 picks up operations in the Aleutians after the Battle of Midway and carries through to the capture of Attu and Kiska, including the Battle of the Komandorski Islands. Morison, who took part in Operation Galvanic, describes in detail the planning, preparation, and execution of the great amphibious operations on the Gilbert Islands and the conquest of the Marshalls, offering frank discussions of mistakes made and some amusing anecdotes, including how the Japanese fooled U.S. troops in the evacuation of Kiska.
