Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Historical Reading SOG by John L. Plaster is a well researched and exciting book about special commando operations in Vietnam. SOG is short for Studies and Observation Group, a name created to confuse the VietCong and North Vietnamese. This book is writen by a military historian about the SOG group. This means unlike other Vietnam books by former soldiers, this book has no boring childhood story or boring training stories - this book is all pure action filled history of the SOG. The book tells how the SOG was born and the major operations (Prairie Fire, Daniel Boone, Bright Light). Very rich in historical content and action packed book. The book cover shown is not the current book cover which is red in color with a similar helicopter photo. The book is currently available in a number of Chapters store, buy this book before it goes out of print. Also recommended The Rise and Fall of an American Army, by Shelby L. Stanton and Semper Fi Vietnam by Edward F. Murphy.
