“RedEye: Fulda Cold is a suspenseful, hard-hitting and astonishing piece of military history that is set in 1969 West Germany and explores the reality of what happened on the border between the conflicting forces of East and West that I knew very little about until now.” https://walkerputsche.wordpress.com/

Rick Fontain tells us about his exciting adventures through a first person narrative that allows the reader to travel with Rick from his initial induction into the army, following him on his journey where he and his team are stationed near the Fulda Gap to prevent an invasion or attack from Russia.

As a reader, I felt that I could connect easily with Rick on his incredible journey as he takes you by the hand and doesn’t let it go until the last page. Fortin does a remarkable job of describing the people and the landscape of the late 1960s, while throwing more light onto the tactics that the American military deployed to contain Russia in the Cold War. I certainly hope that this isn’t the last we have heard from Rick Fontain, and do hope that there is a sequel in the near future, as I cannot wait to read more of this young hero’s adventures and more of his infectious good humour.

Finally, I would also like to add that Fortin has put together a remarkably well written story with a vast amount of meticulous research and footnotes that detail the timeframe of when and where things take place. I found this to be tremendously helpful as it strengthened my understanding and added to my reading pleasure.
