There are two true stories in the book A Hundred Miles of Bad Road. The second story is less obvious, but in my opinion, more important. It is a story of hope, not horror, of character, not carnage, of victory, not Vietnam.

Amazing up close view from the commander's seat (tank or APC) about how bad it was for those cavalry guys. It took special (BRAVE) men to take on that role. This book takes the reader along Mr. Birdwell's path from "wet behind the ears" to seasoned fighter and into the reality of what he finally found the war to be - chaos and stupidity coupled with the senseless deaths of some many friends - - to the stoners, drinkers, slackers and the like. The book does have a, let's call it a "well adjusted" ending - meaning Mr. Birdwell came back not all the way but he came back to make a life for himself and his family READ THIS BOOK.

A Hundred Miles of Bad Road: An Armored Cavalryman in Vietnam, 1967-68Why did I wait so long to buy this? Mr. Birdwell's book helped me to understand some things that I was struggling with. Well written from the soldier's point of view and accurate in his assessments of those situations he was faced with during his tour in Vietnam. If you served in Vietnam, get it. If you served in the 25th Infantry division, Get It. If you served in the 3/4 Cavalry, GET IT!

Great book. I served in a similar unit the operated in the same geographical area. A very straight-forward and factual account of how it was. Took me back in a serious way.

Birdwell's vivid, candid and gruesome book ranks with "all quiet on the western front" as a combat classic. This book deserves cinema treatment by the best talent.
Both the book and a matching cinema should be shown at all 4 service academies and in the pentagon. It takes the generals (westmoreland) to task and portrays the horrors of war in words a child could understand. Maybe even generals.
Birdwell's service was silver star but his book deserves the Medal of Honor he deserved.

I was with the 3/4 Cavalry from 3/67 to 3/68 and this is a very well written and extremely accurate account of life with the 3/4 Cavalry and especially what happened during the Tet offensive of 68.
Voodoogore
Psychologically insightful, but also incredibly self honest it is a remarkable memoir. Clear detail that brings a dark war to life. Not an easy read but very worth it for insight on the experience of war and the distinct nature of the Vietnam one.
Dead Samurai
Read this book for a ground soldier's perspective of the beginning of the Tet offensive. Down to earth style makes for a good read.
This book was written about my husband's cousin that was killed in Vietnam. He said it was very informative about how he dies.
