About this product
- DescriptionSOG was the most secret elite U.S. military unit to serve in the war in Vietnam, so secret it was black - meaning its very existence was carefully concealed, even denied by the government. Incuously code-named the Studies and Observations Group, SOG contained only volunteers from such units as the Army Green Berets, USAF Air Commandos and Navy SEALs, and answered directly to the Pentagon's Joint Chiefs, with some missions requiring approval from the White House. Inside Vietnam, only General William Westmoreland and a few senior n-SOG officers were briefed on SOG activities. Now Major John L. Plaster, a three-tour SOG veteran, vividly recounts their never-before-revealed exploits.
- Author BiographyJohn L. Plaster served three tours in SOG. As a long-range reconnaissance leader, he led intelligence-gathering teams behind enemy lines in Laos and Cambodia before leaving SOG in late 1971. He was decorated for heroism four times and retired from the U.S. Army as a major. He is the author of SOG: A Photo History of the Secret Wars, The Ultimate Sniper and The History of Sniping and Sharpshooting.
