Winner of the 2012 Robert Kroetsch City of Edmonton Book Prize

Shortlisted for the 2012 Edmonton Public Library Alberta Readers' Choice Award

In 1941, a young man imagines thrilling battles and heroic acts when he lies about his age and joins the army. Assigned to the Winnipeg Grenadiers, part of the Canadian army in Hong Kong, Freddy McKee becomes a prisoner of war six weeks after arriving in Hong Kong.

Five years pass and Freddy finally returns home from the war, but three women—Joanna Keegan, her daughter Hope, and the beautiful and mysterious Su Li—feel echoes of Freddys ordeal in each of their lives. For Freddy, the memory of war is a heavier burden than the weapon he once carried. Freddy must fight to survive in a world that has left him behind.

Veterans traditionally have never shared the hell of their war. Often the only way to get close to their experiences is via skillful fiction. Gritty and well-researched, Freddys War takes us to the siege of Hong Kong and back. —Ted Barris, author and military historian

Wartime love stories are the stuff of cliché, but theres no false sentimentality in Freddys War. With a cool reporters eye, Schultz draws on her deep knowledge of China, and of prairie social history, to craft an understated, elegaic story of loneliness, loss, and dislocation. —Paula Simons, Edmonton Journal
