    The four-volume "Master of War" series by David Gilman. Fast-paced historical fiction covering the 100 Years War. Action-packed and well written. I'm just starting Volume 3. Also, each book is quite long - which is always a good thing for a good read.

    The back catalogue of Thomas Perry, a crime fiction writer, including the trilogy "The Butcher's Boy": good pacing, unexpected plot twists, and a deft hand at dark humor...

    Just finished Volume 3/4. Super series.

    Have read "Chickenhawk" many times. Probably the best book on the helicopter war in RVN ever written. My best friend and I both enlisted in '67 for the Warrant Officer Flight program. I flunked the physical because of an equilibrium problem resulting from an earlier head injury. So, I went to the Airborne, and he went on to fly choppers without me. He survived a brutal tour, in which he was shot down 13 times. He's the guy who sent me my copy of "Chickenhawk".

    Might sound fucked up, but I sort of wish I could have been around at that time & went to Vietnam. Love reading books about it.

    Its a badass book no doubt. Ive read it several times as well. Since this is the book thread:



    Another cool read is "Marine Sniper" about Carlos Hathcock and his 93 Confirmed Kills in Vietnam.

    If we're going to do Vietnam books, try "The Crouching Beast" by Frank Boccia.

    One of the most powerful books I have ever read....and I read a lot of books. I sent copies to my brother (Vietnam 1969) and to two guys I served with. All three bought copies to send to others.

    This was "Hamburger Hill". May 1969. The HILL. Eleven times up it.

    This was my unit. I walked those trails for months.

    I was blessed by the god of timing to have finished my tour in April......less than a month before the assault on The Beast began. Once again, as with several other times during that year, an angel sat on my shoulder.

    Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said is a 1974 science fiction novel by Philip K. Dick



    Philip can be a slow starter with his books, and chapter one was real slow- some crap about a guy with a girlfriend and mistress or something,
    but finally picks up at the end.
    Now at the start of two he may be already dead?

    Thanks for those. I think they ended the draft when I was in 11th grade, but man I saw some of my friends sweating it out back then. Ever read Tiger the LURP Dog? It's supposed to be a little-known classic.

    ^I have a copy of "Tiger the LURP Dog" in my hand as I type. The inscription reads, "Dave. Maybe this will help you let loose some of your demons. Bear".

    I was in the 101st Airborne LRRP teams from April '68 - April '69.
