On the edge of my seat one minute, laughing out loud at others, I was truly delighted by this unusual story. It’s not often that an action-adventure book with a military setting is filled with humor, but this one is! And there is suspense a-plenty. I found it hard to put this book down. The value-added is that one learns a lot of heretofore virtually unknown U.S. military history (because it was top secret at the time) from the period of 1968 − 1970. Clearly, author Bill Fortin has done his homework, and educates non-military readers with a series of footnotes explaining military jargon, events, equipment, protocol, ritual, etc. “RedEye: Fulda Cold” is a thoroughly absorbing and entertaining novel. I highly recommend it.
