by Hubert Marlow

CID: Army Detectives in Peace and War focuses on criminal investigations, both funny and serious, conducted by the author and his fellow special agents. The cases range from thefts to murder, including the murders of two special agents in Vietnam, one of whom was a member of the author’s CID detachment. The book contains cases from WWII through Vietnam.


Hubert Marlow, raised in Germany during WWII, immigrated to Elmhurst, Illinois, at age fifteen. He joined the U.S. Army in April 1956 and spent the first five years in the military police. He became a special agent of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID), serving almost fourteen years and retiring in April 1976. He worked as an investigator for Munford Inc. for one year and graduated from Munford Institute of Polygraphy. Hubert then became a special agent of the U.S. government’s Defense Investigation Service, serving twenty and one-half years and retiring for good in January 1998.

Reader Review
"…captures the essence of the Army’s own investigative organization better than any TV show could. The book deals with everything from petty crimes to the murder of the author’s fellow agents in Vietnam. This is an insider view on an organization that has little or no public profile…the book is well written and flows along with story after story about the cases that the CID worked on.

For readers who enjoy a good who-done-it genre of book— this will offer up something of interest. It is well worth reading and it will give a greater insight into what the CID is; until this book, it was always a mystery to me what the CID was all about. I found this book…both educational as well as entertaining. I give this book the MWSA highest rating! A MUST READ BOOK!"
