Author from Quebec City Publishes New Book Titled "Best Regards Freddie"
October 07, 2014 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) October 7, 2014 - "Best Regards Freddie," a new book by Victor Breedon, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
The first twenty years of the twentieth century, 1900-1920. In no other twenty year time span has the world changed so radically, commencing in perhaps the very best of times, and proceeding to certainly, and suddenly, the very worst.
The story of those years can be told in different ways. Freddie Breedon and his modestly middle class British family and friends who would live, travel, and work, and also fight and support war efforts during those two decades have allowed us with their regular correspondence a unique way of understanding that time period. In those twenty years 200 postcards would pass between them, postcards that were later collected by Freddie. When blended together, these 200 short snapshots of history from different parts of the world, and from different authors, can give us a single picture of this time period like no other.
To add further colour and depth to this historical account, a second form of authentic reportage is used in this story. Beverley Moysey was a Canadian soldier who fought in the trenches of the western front in the Great War. He kept a vivid and explicit diary of his months there, and thus can be found in its entirety in "Best Regards Freddie."
"Best Regards Freddie" is a 244-page hardcover with a retail price of $63.00. The ISBN is 978-1-4809-1168-0. It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
