Take me Back to my Red River Valley" Lyrics
served in the U.S. Army 3rd Armor Division from 1968 to 1970.
Fortin and his unit take part in a little known conflict pitted against an invasion force from Russia.
As a reader of military action stories, I've enjoyed a number of excellent military adventures.
After enjoying the singular accomplishments of Dewey Anderson in a modern day conflict against the Russian Mafia in "Independence Day," then read of Scott Harvath in action in the Republic of Congo in "Code of Conduct."
"Redeye Fulda Cold" provides a good change of pace for the reader of military adventure who enjoys action in the 1960s to 1970. As I was in active service from 1967-1970, I felt something in common with the solciers in this story. I tried to imagine myself in the same circumstances as Fortin and wondered how I would have acted.
The story is described realistically and was an enjoyable read.
