The Novel: A National Book Award Finalist, The 13th Valley is a literary cornerstone for the Vietnam Generation. The story follows an American infantry unit on its spiraling descent into a world of conflict and darkness as it maneuvers to find, fix and destroy an NVA basecamp deep in the jungled mountains and valleys of I Corps.
Racing this weekend in the 2016 Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational, Frank Del Vecchio has reincarnated his 1983 National Championship Formula Ford (see photo below) to help publicize the audio edition release by Audible.com of brother John’s classic war novel.
