MAC V SOG: TEAM HISTORY OF A CLANDESTINE ARMY, VOL 15 (XV)

MAC V SOG: TEAM HISTORY OF A CLANDESTINE ARMY, Volume 15 (XV)

Released in 2024, this is the fifteenth edition in the MAC V SOG series by Jason M. Hardy. The limited publication of 250 copies are hard cover with a dust jacket, 400 pages, glued and sewn binding, over 1000 period images of personnel, documents, letters home and artifacts on heavy archival paper.

The book series breaks down the history of reconnaissance teams assigned to Military Assistance Command Vietnam, Studies and Observations Group (MAC V SOG), OPS-35 (Ground Reconnaissance) in a chronological pictorial order from creation to stand down. The men who served in the unit have cooperated with first hand interviews, provided never seen before period pictures and the history of the team: stating who they served with, reconnaissance missions ran, tactics that were implemented and the design of the team’s insignia. The book is enhanced with the help of team members and collectors that supplied wartime artifacts that were worn or used by the veterans. Items only previously read about were professionally photographed and are now shown in full color.
