Dad's War Photos: Adventures in the South Pacific
Neal Bertrand , author
Curtis Bertrand was just a country boy with a camera when he entered the U.S. Army in World War II. He returned home from the Southwest Pacific Theater with 600 pictures to share with family and friends, never realizing the importance these unique views of the war would provide. Using his photos and portions of the battalion’s official journal, the author traces his father’s steps from home, to boot camp, to war, and back home. The reader will experience WWII through these photos, including heartbreaking accounts and terrifying experiences.
