FROM THE PUBLISHER - A work that has served as a literary cornerstone for the Vietnam generation, The 13th Valley follows the strange and terrifying Vietnam combat experiences of James Chelini, a telephone-systems installer who finds himself an infantryman in territory controlled by the North Vietnamese Army. Spiraling deeper and deeper into a world of conflict and darkness, this harrowing account of Chelini’s plunge and immersion into jungle warfare traces his evolution from a semipacifist to an all-out warmonger. The seminal novel on the Vietnam experience, The 13th Valley is a classic that illuminates the war in Southeast Asia like no other book. ‘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.
