Author Neal Bertrand wrote Dad's War Photos: Adventures in the South Pacific in honor of his father, Curtis Bertrand, who served in World War II. Cutis took numerous black-and-white photographs of his experiences; Neal Bertrand reconstructs his father's experiences in boot camp and overseas deployment from both the camera lens and extensive research of military records. The camera lens offers a window through time to the New Guinea battle campaigns in Dobodura and Saidor; the relatively obscure battle for Biak Island and capture of Mokmer Airdrome; the Philippine Islands campaign, the Battle of Manila, and much more. Photographs on almost every page make Dad's War Photos a captivating visual and historical tour. Highly recommended, especially for World War II memoir collections.
