Lynne Black is one of those warriors who have added onepiece to the puzzle which was known as MACV SOG and the secret projects that fought the silent bloody contacts across the fence in the Second Indochina War His details of a Saigon Headuarters debriefing by Chief SOG Colonel Steve Cavanaugh are the first in depth recorded recollections of one of those taut sometimes combative sessions between the desk jockeys and the men whom they sent all too often to their deaths His narration of the events which a History Channel program labeled “Jungle Ambush” which is part of series titled “Heroes Under Fire” will immediately immerse the reader in what it meant to “win” The Lottery at FOB 1 The Target Area encompassing the crossroads of Routes 92 and 922 best known by the one name that to this day will conjure images of death and destruction to any recon man who ever ran there Oscar Eight; was the “prize” That aspect of the book I had read Lynne Black's colleague's Meyer account of his time in SOG and so was drawn to this book Although some of the two accounts cross over the writing style is different as is the perspectiveFor me Black's book is an excellent journey through the secret world of SOG warfare describing incredibly dangerous missions across the border to gather Intel on the Jo Chi Minh trailIf you're interested in Vietnam era history this gives a different perspective on the conflict
