    Description

    Inside MACV-SOG

    During the Vietnam War, a “secret war” was fought across the fence in Laos, Cambodia, and North Vietnam, unknown to the media or the public, under the aegis of the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam’s top secret Studies and Observations Group. SOG’s chain of command for missions and after-action reports extended to the White House and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    Small Green Beret-lead teams ran missions into Laos, Cambodia, and North Vietnam without assistance from conventional artillery, tank or infantry units. Once on the ground, their sole support was provided by Air Force Tactical Air and helicopter units, US Army and Marine helicopter aviation personnel and aircrews, and from the South Vietnam Air Force’s 219th Special Operations Squadron, code named Kingbees.

    In Laos, the communists dedicated 50,000 troops to the Ho Chi Minh Trail, including highly trained sappers from the 305th Sapper Battalion, its sole mission: Attack SOG teams.

    Ooof the reading is hard to listen to…

    - [ ] Let me start by saying I have the absolute utmost respect for Tilt. I’ve listen to just about every podcast he’s been on (thanks Jocko) and purchased all his books. The book is written in his typical first person perspective. It is well written. The breaks down however is the same as his other book, it’s the readings. When you compare it to other MACVSOG books like Uncommon Valor, SOG Medic, We Few, Whispers in the Tall Grass, there is a clear difference is the experience. On the Ground is jarring to listen to. The halting cadence of the read is distracting and the unedited repeats at the start of the book could have easily been edited in post production. It is the audio version of someone using a typewriter, get to the end of the line and use the handle to shift up and back to the left. It’s extremely difficult to listen to. The most a coward part is in Chapter 3 when additional, first-person emphasis is placed on certain folks. This book should take its place alongside the above mentioned SOG titles and perhaps it does in written form. The audio though makes it one I want to listen to more than once but will not because there are better books available. If production costs are the issue, Tilt it would be my honor to cover the costs. Your tireless efforts to memorialize the memory of MACVSOG should have every advantage available. Happy to help.

    incredible

    Speed up by .2 to help with Mr Meyer's slightly strange cadence. Thankfully he is able to read his own account of this intensely fascinating part of history.

    The audio version was horrible

    I could only listen to about 5 min of this book. The audio performance was like listening to someone struggle through a book above their reading level, or someone just learning to read. I’m sure it’s a great story, but don’t get the audio version.

    Another excellent showing by one of our finest

    Not much more to say than John absolutely knocked it out of the park. Some complained about the editing missteps, I suppose I should mention that yes, they are present, but they don't detract from the work. There is a little overlap between this book and the first, Across the Fence, but it's more along the lines of things he mentioned in passing there, he fleshes out more here. Also this title includes some more insight into the downtime and camp life of the SOG recon men. JSM, you are a national treasure.

    TREMENDOUS BRAVERY

    It was a great listen; I'd recommend listening to Jocko Willink to get to know this humble SOG warrior before listening to the book.

    The man who lived it!

    I loved the fact that the man who narrates the story, is the same man who lived it! Unparalleled courage. A real history of the time and events in Southeast Asia.

    Great Book Overall, with a few caveats...

    Overall I enjoyed the stories that were chosen for this book. my few gripes with it are the narration aspects.

    I think John did a great job of narrating but I there seemed to be alot of misread words made when reading. Can't really fault him for that, as people get tongue-tied but it there was little or no editing of the audio after they recorded the book (examples below).

    At one point John stops narrating to speak with his editor/producer about rereading a certain section (you can hear the other voice on the background).

    Another point somewhere in the middle chapters John straight up burps for a good 3 seconds before continuing to narrate. I don't know how that was not removed before publishing.

    Lastly, John seemed to be congested while reading the last few chapters. I assume he had to meet deadlines. I just kept wanted to clear my throat as I heard him speak. please let the man be in his best form for the next book.

    I understand mistakes happen and there is a whole production associates with the audiobook creation, but the seemingly lack of revision and cleaning up of the audio really took away from the experience,
