Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the time when the French relinquished control in South Vietnam to the Americans. It shows that this loss of control was actually a long and drawn-out process. It states that the United States did not seek to replace France, and in this new period of collaboration, mixed committees were created. These committees were used to solve problems in the areas of public order, information and propaganda, refugees, and agricultural reform, among other issues. The chapter also looks at certain facets that the Americans changed in Vietnam, including the country's economic efforts and military matters.
