Etorofu: Northern Territories
The island of Etorofu, considered part of the Northern Territories in the series (and also in modern-day Japan) is actually called Ostrov (Island) Iturup and is part of the Russia Kuril Island Chain. Covered in "LOST HERITAGE" and "CAPTIVATED", the Northern Territories are finally mentioned here as being retaken from Russia towards the end of Non-Nuclear World War IV. Also mentioned here is the Battle of Nemuro, mentioned in "ANNIHILATION" as the Umibōzu played a large part in the operation. More information on the "Northern Territories" can be found in the Allusions section for "CAPTIVATED".
