In Memory of. Frank Delaney.

In Memory of. The story explores the making of a genocide with emphasis on Communist factions, their actions, interactions, and ideologies, and their effects upon a people.

Carry Me Home completes a trilogy begun by The 13th Valley, and deals, much like James Jones' Some Came Running, with veterans trying to adapt to civilian lif. .in the end they gain a frightening power from Del Vecchio's accretion of utterly authentic detail.

I know John Del Vecchio, he's a friend of my ex-girlfrind's mother and I met him on several occasions. I have read both of Del Vecchio's earlier books and looked forward to the release of Carry Me Home for a number of years. I certainly hope it is reprinted since I gave away my only copy. He was always such a nice guy to me and I bought this book because of several recomendations and because he's just a genuine, nice guy. I read the book and was blown away by his attention to detail and emotional weight. The book is an excellent story about the returning Vietnam vets and an inspiration to present day persons in all walks of life.

The Official page for NY Times Best Selling author John M. Del Vecchio, the author of The 13th Valley, Darkness Falls .

He’d dreamed again but was again unable to recall the dream. Scattered flickerings of city light came in through the narrow French doors. He looked at Linda ile that warmed him but which could not dispel his tension. Quietly he pulled back the sheet, rolled off the bed, fell into a crouch. He scanned the room, the French doors that led to the two-by-six-foot third-floor balcony, the transom light of the interior bedroom door. It was four o’clock in the morning.

Carry Me Home is the remarkable story of their struggle to find each other and themselves, a saga spanning fifteen years-fifteen years lost in a wilderness called America. In its scope, breadth, and brilliance, Carry Me Home is much more than a novel about Vietnam and Vietnam veterans.

by John M. Del Vecchio, author of The 13th Valley. Carry Me Home (Book Three of The Vietnam War Trilogy) brings the troops back to America - a nation confused and divided by the wars in Southeast Asia. In this poignant epic, Del Vecchio transports a group of soldiers to their final battlefield: the home front. High Meadow Farm, in the fertile hill country of central Pennsylvania, becomes their salvation. In Vietnam they had been brothers in arms. Now, in the face of personal tragedy and bureaucratic deception, they create an even deeper allegiance - one of the spirit and of the land

Carry Me Home: Birmingham, Alabama, the Climactic Battle of the Civil Rights Revolution, written by Diane McWhorter and published by Simon & Schuster in 2001, won the J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize and the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction. McWhorter grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, and recounts being about the same age as the girls killed in the September 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church, though she "was growing up on the wrong side of the revolution".

A sequel to The 13th Valley finds a band of veteran survivors of Vietnam attempting to return to their American homes, where they are given a hostile homecoming and form an allegiance to one another in the hill country of Pennsylvania. Reprint.

I know John Del Vecchio, he's a friend of my ex-girlfrind's mother and I met him on several occasions. He was always such a nice guy to me and I bought this book because of several recomendations and because he's just a genuine, nice guy. I read the book and was blown away by his attention to detail and emotional weight. Being to young to remember the Vietnam war, this was an interesting lesson in coping with the seriousness of war and a country that doesn't want you back. The story is very involved and very fine tuned. Though not exactly light reading, the book is involving and beckons you to read on.
I had a chance to discuss the book with him a while after I read it and expressed my admiration and respect for him and his book. He was gracious and said he was working on a new book. This soon turned out to be "Darkness Falls"...Another great book by Del Vecchio. "Carry Me Home" requires dedication to read, but you're left with a real connection with the characters and a feeling of accomplishment...

Believable, real, important; every VA executive should be required to read and follow as a guideline for how not to manage veterans health issues.

Too much pyschoanalyzing.

I have read both of Del Vecchio's earlier books and looked forward to the release of Carry Me Home for a number of years. I certainly hope it is reprinted since I gave away my only copy. The book is an excellent story about the returning Vietnam vets and an inspiration to present day persons in all walks of life. DelVecchio is my favorite author.
