The blurb was right. Donahue was able to place its readers in the midst of a steaming Vietnamese jungle and captured the feel of running recon deep behind the lines.

It lacks details on tactics, techniques and procedures that similar books on the subject have (John Plaster's SOG and Secret Commandos).

A quick, easy but not so fulfilling read.
