    Description

    On his second combat tour, Nick Brokhausen served in Recon Team Habu, CCN. This unit was part of MACV-SOG (Military Assistance Command Vietnam Studies and Observations Group), or Studies and Observations Group as it was innocuously called. The small recon companies that were the center of its activities conducted some of the most dangerous missions of the war, infiltrating areas controlled by the North Vietnamese in Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia. The companies never exceeded more than thirty Americans, yet they were the best source for the enemy's disposition and were key to the US military being able to take the war to the enemy. This was accomplished by utilizing both new and innovative technology, and tactics dating back to the French and Indian Wars.

    This small unit racked up one of the most impressive records of awards for valor of any unit in the history of the United States Army. It came at a terrible price, however; the number of wounded and killed in action was incredibly high. Those missions today seem suicidal. In 1970 they seemed equally so, yet these men went out day after day with their indigenous allies - Montagnard tribesmen, Vietnamese, and Chinese Nungs - and faced the challenges with courage and resolve.

    Whispers in the Tall Grass is the second volume of Nick's riveting memoir of his time with MACV-SOG.

    Excellent

    Both the book and the performance are absolutely perfect. An excellent, brutally honest look into SOG in Vietnam and Laos. The incredible feats of these men and their montanyards and their Chinese nung. It’s amazing that any of them ever survived. My respect for these men boils over.

    outstanding!

    As a Marine and a major history fan this is one of the best told stories on Vietnam I've heard. I've read about 13 and listened to 5 books on Vietnam and this is the one I already have recommend to a friend. God bless those warriors who fought and died in the jungle. The stories of their heroism should to heard by every American

    Poignant Vietnam Memoir

    Narration: a bit sing song, needs more variation in inflection and rate of speech.

    Story: Humorous and sad at the same time.

    Better than average and recommended.

    Fond memories

    I enjoyed this book. The narrator had a pleasant voice and spoke clearly. I enjoyed the side stories. They reminded me of good times during my time in the Navy Intel corp

    Once again a great Book

    I really love Nick Brockhausens way to write about all this hard stuff he witnessed.
    With a big portion of humor but also respectful.
    He takes you with him and you can really feel the bond if brotherhood he had with the people by his side.
    George Spelvin did a great job once again reading this book.
