Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

This 1982 American Book Award nominee tells the strange and terrifying story of the Vietnam combat experiences of James Chelni, a telephone-systems installer who finds himself an infantryman in Vietcong-controlled territory.
