"You have to react instinctively. In this game there's no second place, only the quick and the dead."In Vietnam, Mobile Guerrilla Force was the only American unit that truly carried out guerrilla-style hit-and-run military operations. Armed with silencer-equipped MK-II British Sten guns, M-16s, M-79s, and M-60s, the men of the Mobile Guerilla Force roamed for weeks at a time through steamy triple-canopy jungle in areas owned by NVA and VC, destroying base camps, ambushing enemy forces, and gathering the intelligence Saigon desperately needed. In 1967, James Donahue was a Special Forces medic and an assistant platoon leader for the Mobile Guerrilla Force's fiercely anti-Vietnamese Cambodian mercenaries. On mission Blackjack-33, they were to act as bait and lure VC and NVA regiments into decisive engagements so that they could be targeted and destroyed by the 1st Infantry Division. Well, the MGF did its job, but the 1st Infantry Division refused to show up. . . .Now, with the brutal, unflinching honesty only an eyewitness could possess, Donahue relives the deadly adrenaline rush of firefights conducted on the run and medical operations performed under fire, capturing the savage courage and sacrifice of these proud U.S. and Cambodian warriors.
  • Not your run of the mill book about the Vietnam war. This book was about a mobile guerilla force that is made up of men from different cultures. Some are Americans and some are Cambodians and they work together to battle the NVA and VC. The two cultures develop great friendships as the men stood by each other in battle and made sure the men got the best care available. It was great seeing the bonds that were formed between the men as they fought side by side. I never really new the Cambodians played as big a part as they did. Glad this book filled me in.

  • I enjoyed this book because it told a little bit of a different story I didn't know much about even though I am a Vietnam veteran. The early special forces working with the Cambodians as part of their patrols was in interesting story. My opinion of their (Cambodians) fierce willingness to fight and reasons for doing so was pretty much unknown to me until I read this book.
    The Cambodians lost their previous homeland in what became parts of Vietnam and had no acceptance by North Vietnamese OR South Vietnamese people.
    These guys, along with American Spec Forces, ran extremely dangerous and almost suicidal missions in the thickest of Viet Cong controlled areas. Almost always outnumbered...their ability to sting and disappear was uncanny, while leaving behind toe poppers and claymores for those who tried to follow them, and also calling in successful air strikes on concentrated areas of VC and NVA regulars in the "Forbidden Zone". Excellent book and educational about the ''bodes".

  • The main thing I took away from Blackjack-33 was the author's deep feeling of comradeship with his Khmer Krom men and their families. I enjoyed reading the extensive personal history of each of the operation's participants almost as much as the story itself. Sadly, even after the end of the war, the Khmer Krom continued to take extraordinary losses inside both Cambodia and Vietnam at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. The massacres of over 20,000 Khmer Krom civilians inside Vietnam during 1975-78 is not a subject of much interest to judges at the ongoing trial of the Khmer Rouge leadership. I fear much the same fate will befall our closest supporters in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I wonder how the Vietnam-era Special Forces compare with the current generation in terms of foreign language skills. I doubt that the current generation could have the same close personal attachment with their Iraqi and Afghan counterparts that the old-timers had with their Cambodian, Thai, Lao, and Vietnamese brothers in arms. I ordered Blackjack-34 immediately after finishing this book.

  • A very special book about the war in Vietnam and Combodia also it passes on to the younger people that in a war how important it is to listen and follow orders or you you could be the next to die. Knowledge and wisdom are two things you can never have enough of in a war.

  • I read a lot of books, but I rarely take the time to write a review. But every now and then I run across one that is so well written that I have to take the time to write a review to do it justice. Blackjack-33 is one of those books.

    If you're looking for a good read, this is it. A very well written first person account that reads like a novel. Very descriptive and action packed from the very first page. No long stories about the authors childhood and family and all the other usual fluff that is just designed to fill pages and chapters before the action starts. Donahue takes you into the jungle to read what you bought the book for from the very first page, and he tells this story amazingly well. He puts you right there along side him in the steamy jungle. Donahue is an amazingly gifted author with an amazing story to tell, and he tells it amazingly well. Buy the book, you won't be disappointed.

  • Walk along with Jim Donahue on a SOP mission in the Forbidden zone in RVN.
    you can feel the oppressive heat, and smell the jungle odors. One of the best portrayals of life -in-the-Nam "way back then" in calendar time, but brought back to the mental NOW by Donahue's descriptions of even the little things that effected the SO troops.
    Highly recommended read for the person that wants to get a good understanding of what our troops experienced in coordination with the "Bodes" in the Forbidden zone.

  • This was a really great book. The Author and the men he served with are true hero's. I had no clue that the Cambodians served with our troops in Vietnam. They were exceptionally brave and dedicated warriors. Really to bad that most of them died when fighting for their own country of Cambodia.

  • Very interesting read. A professional soldier doing dangerous work in a very hostile environment. I have always had enormous respect for special forces operatives. I especially enjoy reading the details of dangerous missions. This soldiers story will put the reader out front...where there are men hunting men and the mayhem that results when they meet.
