The period immediately following the Geneva Conference and the problem of how to bring or not bring about the 1956 elections was a critical juncture for the French, Vietnamese, and Americans. The discussion includes a perspective of the changing international scene from each of the major players involved in the elections issue, including Washington and Paris.
