    I picked up PROMIS Vietnam for free and was suitably impressed I'd happily throw five bucks down range for it Jack Murphy is a natural story teller He crafts a high speed military action novella that oozes credibility You can almost smell the cordite and the rot of the jungle as you fight it out with Deckhard his leading manA lot of writers out there can tell a story but don't really understand the material Murphy is the real deal a former SF operators who's seen a few things and can craft a gripping tale I've also read PROMIS Rhodesia and I'm following this series eagerly I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fast paced action thriller that's well written easy to follow and close to the markKeep up the fantastic work Murphy you're killing itJack Silkstone

    Jack Murphy's novel Reflexive Fire is due to come out any time now and I'm looking forward to it In the meantime he's begun a series of short stories which comprise the mercenary career of his Reflexive Fire protagonist's father Sean Deckard In Issue #1we find Sean Deckard on a SOG team snooping and pooping in Vietnam Laos and Cambodia during the post Tet chapter of US involvement in the regionThe innocent sounding Studies and Observation Group widely known by the SOG acronym is surrounded by far secrecy than I once assumed I heard some of the old timers talking about it though never in specific detail when I was a lowly grunt Now I wonder if those people had any actual knowledge of it or were just passing on vintage scuttlebutt from the pseudo mythical CIA operations in southeast AsiaBoth the CIA and Special Forces branched out from Wild Bill Donovan's Office of Strategic Services OSS of WWII fame During the tragic fiasco in Vietnam the two organizations came full circle to reunite in the form of SOG As I mention in my Elite Forces pages on my website special operationsunconventional warfare forces are most effective when operating with their own intelligence gathering capabilities organic to their organizations Futile sacrifices of the lives of elite warriors like Pont du Hoc; or just plain wastes of effort and resources like the Son Tay raid demonstrate this principle SOG therefore should have been a force to be reckoned with Though still shrouded in secrecy by all accounts they were But like the entire Vietnam experience and arguably Korea and other military misadventures tactical success after resounding tactical success all are rendered meaningless along with their cost in human lives when the command structure that put our men in harm's way is not committed to achieving strategic victory Jack Murphy gives us a short glimpse into this insane mess through the eyes of Sean DeckardDeckard was recruited into SOG from the LRRPs Long Range Reconnaisance Patrols later organized into Ranger companies and he is a hard charger Whatever his inner motivations might be he is the ideal soldier dedicated to his mission at the cost of most everything he might hold dear However he is on his way to some hardcorps disillusion when he proves just a little too effective at what he doesIn the interview segment on my blog the author provides a link to some information about PROMIS It is spooky stuff if true and evidently not easy to explain well in simple terms This process shrouded in even mystery than SOG provides the subsurface impetus for the surface action in this series I'm already fascinated to watch how this technilogical monstrosity is unveiled throughout the seriesBut even without all that Issue #1 of PROMIS is a great read I would have finished it in one sitting if life hadn't got in the way The action is fluid visual and at no point made me groan in disbelief Jack did his research well enough that I had nothing to nitpick On top of that he's a veteran and knows how to write about combat operations without sinking into shellshocked introspection He knows how to tweak real world scenarios to make an entertaining read without interrupting our suspension of disbeliefPROMIS is short but packs a wallop At 99 cents you can't beat it I've spent much for fiction not nearly as good I plan to buy the whole series as he writes it

    Jack Murphy does it againPROMIS Vietnam covers the exploits of SSG Sean Deckard a former LRRP Ranger and the One Zero team leader of RT Key West based out of MACV SOG's Command and Control North Deckard is turned onto the possibility of raiding the Vietcong's command center but finds than he bargains forThe action doesn't let up going from firefight to firefight with gruesome detail We also get a look into what daily life was like for the men of MACV SOGI personally feel the plot could have been better adapted into a longer novella or a short novel and Murphy's minimalist detail makes characterization difficult to those outside the military but Murphy's target audience seems to be the military crowd so that works out in his favorAll in all a rip roaring military adventure and a solid entry into a series of novellas I look forward to reading the seuel
