Building the Alaska Highway DVD
"In may of 1942, across the rugged sub-Arctic wilderness of Alaska, British Columbia and Yukon Territory, thousands of American soldiers began one of the biggest and most difficult construction projects ever undertaken - the building of the Alaska Highway... This American Experience production tells how for eight months... soldiers battled mud, muskeg, and mosquitoes; endured ice, snow, and bitter cold; bridged raging rivers, graded lofty peaks and cut pathways through primeval forests to push a 1,520-mile road across one of the world's harshest landscapes."

A PBS American Experience Production, 60 Minutes in Length.
