Valley of Death. Issue 1-4eBook - 2011
The mini-series "Valley of Death" continues the acclaimed and awarding Vietnam Journal comic book saga. We are taken to the A Shau Valley near the Laotian border where creator, writer, and artist Don Lomax continues to chronicle an embedded journalist's eye-opening experiences of the events during the Vietnam War. Here the United States military decides to launch an offensive into the valley. This has been a long time staging area that the Viet Cong have used for years to send men and supplies into South Vietnam from the enemy's sanctuary in Laos. Meanwhile 'Journal' becomes fascinated with the story of a prisoner of war who belonged to a small tribe that has lived in the A Shau Valley for centuries. They have no sense of country, politics or idealogy, only for their local people, but they are dragged anyhow into a war they couldn't even comprehend. The Vietnam Journal series has drawn raves and recommendations from Military Book Club, Entertainment Weekly, Library School Journal, and Publishers Weekly.
