Sinopsis: This book is a fitting tribute to these unsung heroes of the Vietnam War. "SOG et al" is the first in a series of seven projected volumes on the subject and represents years of research, interviews, and study by the authors. This book will greatly enhance your knowledge on a collecting subject that has been shrouded by the mists of history for far too long. This book focuses on the history of seven SOG Recon Teams from CCN (Command and Control North) and CCC (Command and Control Central). The authors intend to cover additional teams in subsequent volumes. The recon teams in this volume include: 1. RT Asp 2. RT Colorado 3. RT Hawaii 4. RT Idaho 5. RT Indigo 6. RT Montana 7. RT Rattler Each chapter provides a chart containing names of the American recon team members in chronological order along with their position. The pages of the book are comprised of never published SOG images from each team along with brief captions. The photo quality is superior to all other SOG books and the book itself is well made with high quality pages and binding. There are many beautiful scans of authentic SOG recon patches. Many of the pieces are directly attributed to the vet with solid provenance. These insignia images are superior quality to all preexisting SOG and Special Forces books. Additional highlights include an appendix in the back providing a reference section of all the recon team patch variations from Vietnam, Thailand, Okinawa, and elsewhere. There is also a chapter explaining the history of the notorious "Cheap Charlie" patches. This information has never been published before and is a real asset to Vietnam insignia collectors. The book is on par with Shelby Stanton's long out of print Special Forces at War: An Illustrated History, Southeast Asia 1957-1975, in that the images are so amazing, you can pick this book up 1000 times and discover something new in a photo that you overlooked before. from Chris Hughes Book Review
