History

The War That Time Forgot is the collective name of many otherwise unconnected events where members of the US Military found themselves in conflict with prehistorical creatures in one or more of several different islands in the Pacific Ocean, typically during the time period of World War Two. Often, but not always, those conflicts ended in the destruction of the island by either natural or human means.

With few exceptions,[1] those incursions were unplanned and accidental. While many of the personnel involved did in fact return alive, the existence of those islands and their dangerous creatures remained strangely sparse even in military circles. Very few of the encounters beneffited from the intelligence of previous confrontations.

There has never been a satisfactory explanation for the origin of so nany strangely populated islands in the area, nor for the failure of the Armed Forces in sharing intelligence on the issue. It has been proposed that the region may be subjected to some sort of time rift phenomenom,[2] perhaps similar to that sometimes attributed to the Bermuda Triangle; that it may have obtained its odd fauna by way of a subterranean connection to the fabled land of Skartaris; and even that one or more of the islands had somehow preserved dinosaus in suspended animation since prehistorical times, until sysmic activity or some other external event disrupted it.

As for the excessive secrecy, partial explanations may include the decision to avoid panic during a time of war effort, as well as the false impression that the destruction of some of those islands during specific incidents might have resolved the issue.

It is also conceivable that proper warnings were put in place, but highly classified. That would help in explaining a recurrence of unusual incursions in the area, including the first recorded field test of the original G.I. Robot model, nicknamed "Joe".[3]
