The Alaskan military was descended from Russian units in Alaska in the 19th and 20th century. Several of these units were successful in the Russo-Japanese War, where they are credited in the victory in Mukden over the Japanese. In World War I, they served on the Eastern Front. In the Alaskan Civil War that followed, many units deserted to the Alaskan Socialist Republic, some to Sonoma, New Albion, Oregon, and New Russia. When the AFDR was founded, all the Armed Forces of the former Alaskan states have been integrated, including those of Alaska.
