Synopsis

Retold at a time when history eerily repeats itself, in The Tragedy of Vietnam, Again, Christopher Noble shares a pitch-perfect and prophetic memoir of his experience in Vietnam. As sincere as it is alarming, in a rush of intense action, the author provides a bold narrative in which to stake a claim that Americans must begin to question their president and the media to set the record straight once and for all. Critical until the bitter end, his is a dark and at times comic recollection of his twelve months serving in Vietnam as a lieutenant in the Army Medical Service Corps. With the certain air of bitter irony, Noble sees the cruel landscape repainted from the Far East to the canvas of the Middle East and is bold in his conclusion to compare the Vietnam War with the present day War in Iraq. He poignantly demonstrates how in both instances naïve and patriotic American youth head off to war for a government who misled the country and the American press who fuels half-truths and lies.
