Click to EnlargeLONG BINH JAIL: An Oral History of Vietnam's Notorious U.S. Military Prison. Known as "LBJ", it was officially the U.S. Army Installation Stockade in Long Binh, South Vietnam. Noted military historian Cecil Barr Curry tells the story of LBJ through the words of former guards, prisoners, and administrators.

LBJ was a place so feared that American soldiers would rather face the Viet Cong than be sent there. Within the confines of this overcrowded military prison were rule-breakers and dangerous criminals whose offenses ran the gamut from drug possession, insubordination, and AWOL, to assault, rape, and murder.

Containing up to 1,000 prisoners at one time, LBJ was the Army's own little penal colony and one sharply divided by racial tensions. In 1968, these tensions erupted when most of its African-American prisoners took over the prison compound in one of the worst prison riots in American penal history Includes a full-page line drawing of the LBJ installation. 210 pages + 16 pages of photographs.
