SOG by Major (Ret.) John L. Plaster
Book DescriptionWhen the top-secret Studies and Observations Group (SOG)was disbanded in 1972, its thousands of photographs and negatives were ordered burned. But some veterans had brought home personal copies of "official" photos taken on operations, along with thousands of snapshots taken by the men themselves. When Major Plaster, himself a three-tour SOG veteran, began working on his history of SOG he contacted his secret war comrades and uncovered this wealth of photos. The result is the greatest special operations photo collection ever assembled. Be one of the first to get your hands on more than 700 extremely rare photographs of SOG recon teams in action behind enemy lines in Cambodia, Laos and even North Vietnam. These irreplaceable photos bring to life the stories of SOG legends Larry Thorne, Bob Howard, Dick Meadows, George Sisler,"Q" and others, and documents what really happened deep inside enemy territory: Operation Tailwind, the Son Tay raid, SOG's defense of Khe Sanh, Hatchet Force operations, Bright Light rescues, HALO insertions, string extractions, SOG's darkest programs and much more.This powerful book is the companion photo history to SOG: The Secret Wars of American's Commandos in Vietnam and belongs on the bookshelf of every American.
