Donahue, a U.S. Army Special Forces Medic, shares a true story of one day's battle when he and seven other Green Berets, along with their company of Cambodian volunteers, were pinned down in the steaming jungle by Viet-Cong guerrillas and Main Force units. Here is a Vietnam story which needs to be told.

July 18, 1967, Special Forces medic James Donahue and his platoon were on a mission, code named Blackjack-34, to locate enemy units for the 1st Infantry to destroy. But instead a crack enemy platoon found them. Now, Donahue bears witness to the bloody events of that day and the exceptional grit and determination of his teammates. ****
Donahue's books are my favorite first hand accounts of the war in Vietnam. Blackjack-34 does not disappoint.
