    A good account of an often undiscussed part of the Vietnam war Plaster is not the best of writers but he s good enough and his style is clear Reading about the missions is a bit like eating popcorn There is a consistent stream of tales of small unit derringer do If you are not a war buff, this could prove a hard slog However, if one sticks with it, it is hard not to be impressed with what a tiny g
