Description

In Secret Commandos, John L. Plaster tells of his own remarkable covert activities in SOG from 1969 to 1971, as well as those of dozens of his comrades, vividly describing these unique warriors who gave everything fighting for their country—and for one another.

Code-named the Studies and Operations Group, SOG was a secret operations force in Vietnam, the forerunner of today’s Delta Force. Led by exceptionally skilled Green Berets, SOG was the most highly decorated unit in the war.

Always outnumbered—often by as much as 100-1 SOG commandos matched wits in the most dangerous environments with an unrelenting foe who hunted them with trackers and dogs. Ten entire teams disappeared and another fourteen were annihilated.

Although SOG commandos’ chief mission was disrupting the Ho Chi Minh Trail—the main North Vietnamese supply route into South Vietnam—they rescued downed helicopter pilots and fellow soldiers, and infiltrated deep into Loas and Cambodia to identify bombing targets, conduct ambushes, mine roads and capture North Vietnamese soldiers for intelligence purposes.
