John Fuller Ryan

John Fuller Ryan has a lifelong interest in World War II. He holds a Master's Degree with fifty additional credit hours in history.

John was fortunate, given his interests, to have been sent to Germany during military service in the early '60s. Among those Ryan met in Europe were Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe veterans, who he is afraid he hounded ceaselessly for details of their service. Many of the authentic ‘soldier-slang' terms used in the novel, as well as the author's understanding of soldiers' attitudes as the war progressed, stem from this period.

Mr Ryan's interest in the period continued throughout his career as an educator and persists to this day. John has published articles based on veteran interviews for World War II-oriented publications, outlining the experiences of German, American and Soviet combatants. He has also written two commercially successful nonfiction books dealing with transportation logistics during the war.
