    This book provides a vivid and detailed insight into very dangerous operations in Vietnam. Most Americans in the mid 1960's were aware of the war, but not of the dangers that a select few service men volunteered for daily.

    Blackjack 33 gave me insight into how a boy I grew up with in a small town in West Virginia experienced constant danger at the same time my own days were spent in relative safety back home. I grew up with S. Sergeant Tom Horn - "Tommy" - to those of us who knew him before he joind the Army. Although I didn't hear of his passing until this year, Tommy died in 2007, having served 30 years in the Army and 5 combat tours in Vietnam. I felt chills as I read of the patrol accounts and of how small groups of individuals sought out contact with the enemy, knowing that every contact carried grave danger and uncertainty. I'm nearly 45 years late in learning what Tommy experienced, but this book brought back images of him that seem like yesterday.

    Really fine read for the reader who wants a true no frills view

    Really fine read for the reader who wants a true no frills view of what a counter insurgency combat patrol in territory controlled by the
    enemy is like. Most readers do not understand that American forces did not control the countryside and combat patrols in some areas 
    were guaranteed to result in massive firefights and massive casualties on both sides. The cold decisions and hard choices are put to 
    paper in a smooth style that will carry the reader to the steaming jungles and cool rubber plantations of this war. Friends made, friends 
    lost and how it is handled. Have read it twice and still can get the feel and almost smell the smells. Highly recommended
    .
