The Secret Wars of America’s Commandos in Vietnam
The biographical nature of the story is what makes it attractive for the reader and the listener. John L. Plaster tells us about his personal experiences in the war of Vietnam during which he one of those who belonged to a special team that performed quite odd and tough tasks for the country.
Each and every incident in the novel is described with all the details that no doubt are all true as the writer has not added any sort of garnishing material in order to make it more fascinating for the public. The team was so secretly created that even its existence was denied by the government which means that if any one of the members of the SOC is caught he is on his own as no help or recognition from the government would ever come for its aid.
The missions that were given to this team were also almost impossible were an ordinary unit. The book also tells us about the missions that took place behind enemy lines for the fulfillment of the hidden goals of their government and the army. Plaster describes how the team rescued their pilot and other men like that who got arrested during the war or an air raid and how the team fought behind enemy lines with limited supply of weapons and sometime without weapons.
The high twists and turns in the war because of such troops and groups are described in high intensity and the selection of the words is excellent, as these are the words coming from the mouth of a true soldier. The narration by Arthur Morey is up to the mark and settles well with the whole scenario.
