Re: H-Diplo Article Review 570 on “The ‘Vietnam Legion’: West German Psychological Warfare against East German Propaganda in the 1960s.” [25 November 2015]

The closest the West Germans came to a combat role in the Vietnam War, as far as I am aware, was that in 1964, the US Special Operations Group (later renamed Studies and Observations Group) hired some West Germans to serve on small naval vessels used in OPLAN 34A covert operations against the North Vietnamese coast. The Germans proved unsatisfactory and were soon fired. It is unclear whether they had actually conducted any raids against the North Vietnamese coast before they were fired.
