Description
 
David A. Armstrong (ed) (fr); Walton S. Moody (ed); Walter S. Poole (ed). For the U.S., the Second World War had brought new knowledge of Indochina & its problems. As between the combatants, the French & the Viet Minh insurgents, America had every reason to avoid involvement until the situation came to be seen as a communist threat to all of Southeast Asia. France was a crucial ally, especially in holding Europe against Soviet power, but Indochina was drawing off some of Franceís best soldiers & sapping that nationís morale. But if the French gave up, the question of direct American intervention would arise. For the U.S. & for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the years from 1947 to 1954 were a period when these problems slowly grew in importance; they reached crisis proportions in the early months of 1954.
