During twelve watershed, soul-shuddering days in an isolated Vietnamese valley near the Laotian border, the men of an American airborne infantry company learn the reality of war and the prices of survival

From the Publisher:

Praise for The 13th Valley, a Finalist for the American Book Award:

"There have been a number of excellent books about Vietnam...but none has managed to communicate in such detail the day-to-day pain, discomfort, frustration and exhilaration of the American military experience in Vietnam." --Joe Klein, The New York Times Book Review

"The novel about the Vietnam War...Del Vecchio has constructed a classic war novel, a complex and frightening book, that gets it right." --Chicago Sun-Times

"An important and distinctly American book." --William Plummer, Newsweek

"The first Vietnam combat novel to demand--and deserve--comparison with Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead." --Philadelphia Enquirer

"The 13th Valley written with straightforward, authoritative, unadorned prose and merciless intelligence is not just the best Vietnam War novel to date, but the smartest." --C.D.B. Bryan, author of Friendly Fire

"The 13th Valley is dynamite! This is the most sensuously honest interpretation of the Vietnam experience I've ever read." --Al Santoli, author of Everything We Had
