Overview

“Here we go, I said to myself as my system electrified with the familiar rush of adrenaline.”
 
On July 18, 1967, Staff Sergeant James Donahue and the men of Special Forces Detachment A-304 were on an operation; code-name Blackjack-34. Their mission: to find and engage an enemy battalion that was thought to be operating in an enemy-controlled area north of Quon Loi, Vietnam.
 
Now Donahue bears witness to the horrific events of that day and the exceptional grit and heroism of his teammates. Blackjack-34 is a magnificent tribute to the warriors of the Mobile Guerrilla Force―their courage and willingness to press on, no matter what the odds.

    Blackjack-34

    Blackjack-34 is an action-packed war story about Jim Donahue and the Mobile Guerilla Force in Vietnam. Once you start reading you won't want to stop until you are done. I thought it was written extrordinarily well. The authr, Jim Donahue, describes situation in perfect detail. He also tells you what he and otheres were thinking throughtout the whole book. This is one of the best books about the Vietnam War that I have ever read. I would definetely recommend this book to anyone who likes war stories.
