Download e-book for iPad: Hanoi’s War: An International History of the War for Peace by Lien-Hang T. Nguyen

Whereas so much historians of the Vietnam warfare specialise in the origins of U. S. involvement and the Americanization of the clash, Lien-Hang T.

This riveting narrative takes the reader from the marshy swamps of the Mekong Delta to the bomb-saturated pink River Delta, from the corridors of energy in Hanoi and Saigon to the Nixon White apartment, and from the peace negotiations in Paris to high-level conferences in Beijing and Moscow, all to bare that peace by no means had an opportunity in Vietnam.

The grossly inadequate three or four days B Flight 45 allowed to “indoctrinate” and train special operations aircrews from nonvolunteer transport pilots highlights the problem. This situation was further compounded by a later decision to give “two-mission credit” for any single mission lasting more than five hours over enemy territory. Inevitably, partisans and supplies were parachuted into the wrong place. The 6167th Air Base Group (ABG) unit history report for the last six months of 1952 notes, “the primary problem of the Group has been the lack of qualified personnel due to constant rotations.

Parachute jumps were the only practical long-range infiltration tactic for entry into Korea’s rugged interior. By late 1952, getting back alive would prove so difficult that one postwar study concluded such missions “were both futile and callous” in their disregard for the lives of those sent on such missions. 23 agents, the “Angry-9” radio offered only a limited solution. Key examples of both the problem and the potential for success with radio communication would surface that December. The second problem stemmed in part from the difficulties of the first.
