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 over 600 photos to share with family members and friends, never realizing the importance these unique views of the war would provide.

Now shared in Dad’s War Photos: Adventures in the South Pacific, author Neal Bertrand shares the photos that tell the story of his father’s experience.

“This book will help many to appreciate a little more the sacrifices that were made and the forfeiture of youth given up by so many to preserve the freedom we have today.”

“The ‘Elsewhere in the War’ sections describe daily the locations of all the battles throughout the world and give the reader a chance to experience the immense size, destruction, and loss of life.”

“I’ve never seen a book that covers so much of the war in a pictorial form. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in seeing WWII from a different view.”
