Fuelling the War: Revealing an Oil Company’s Role in Vietnam
Louis Wesseling (au). Tells the story of the role of oil in the Vietnam War & sheds light on the murky relationship between war & commerce. In the last 3 years of the war, 1972-75, Wesseling was CEO of Shell Vietnam. The co. controlled half of the country’s oil supply, which was purchased by the Amer., used by the S. Vietnamese & fought for by the Vietcong & the N. Vietnamese. Here is how Amer. oil supplies also ended up fuelling the communist armies, with Shell failing to control shipments which flowed through indirectly to the ‘enemy’. The action takes place in Saigon, among ambassadors, generals, politicians, bankers, businessmen, CIA agents, spies & hustlers. He unveils the behind-the-scenes manipulation & skullduggery that formed this unknown part of the war.
