FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
New Memoir Compares Vietnam War to Conflict in Iraq
The Tragedy of Vietnam, Again by Christopher Noble seeks to identify mistakes and deceptions that sent two generations of Americans to war
MARION, Mass. -- December 2, 2008 -- The Tragedy of Vietnam, Again, a new book by Vietnam War veteran Christopher Noble, tells the story of a medical platoon in the plains of southern Vietnam in 1968. Written as a memoir, the book also aims to expose similarities between the Vietnam War and the current conflict in Iraq.
Throughout the memoir, Noble draws controversial conclusions about the causes and far-reaching effects of the Vietnam and Iraq wars. “The tragedy for Vietnam veterans is the same for the Iraq veterans,” Noble claims. “We both went off to war as naïve and patriotic youth, going to defend our country, when our government has not told the truth to the American public.”
Noble looked to his own service during the Vietnam War to craft the memoir. The book is filled with first-person accounts of combat, field medicine and glimpses into the everyday life of young Americans struggling to survive in Southeast Asia.
Designed to inform readers about the history of the Vietnam War and raise hard questions about American policy and leadership, The Tragedy of Vietnam, Again seeks to act as a warning against repeating mistakes of the past.
