    DescriptionPraise 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"
