Foreign Relations of the United States, 1969-1976: Volume VII: Vietnam, July 1970-January 1972
David Goldman (ed); Erin Mahan (ed)
During the period covered by this vol., the Nixon admin. expanded the Vietnam war into Cambodia and Laos as part of its strategy. This vol. covers South Vietnam in the context of this larger war in Southeast Asia; therefore, it begins in July 1970 in the aftermath of the Cambodian incursion. At the time, a variety of topics dominated the policy discussions of President Nixon and his principal advisers, including U.S. troop withdrawals, Vietnamization, negotiations in Paris, and possible South Vietnamese operations in Cambodia, Laos, and North Vietnam. In late 1970 and early 1971, the focus shifted to decision making regarding plans to implement a major South Vietnamese out-of-country operation called Lam Son 719, launched in early Feb. 1971 to halt or slow the flow of military supplies to Communist forces in South Vietnam via the panhandle of Laos. At the same time, it would demonstrate the growing military prowess of the South Vietnamese Army. On the negotiating front, Kissinger continued in 1970 and throughout 1971 to meet periodically in Paris with Le Duc Tho and other senior Vietnamese Communist functionaries, but made no progress. This vol. also documents President Nixonäó»s penchant for secret operations and covert warfare: his continued support for secret bombing campaigns in Cambodia and Laos and his approval of the Nov. 1971 Son Tay raid into North Vietnam to rescue American prisoners of war. Nixon also signed off on new and continuing information gathering initiatives and propaganda that supported intelligence operations against Communist forces, organizations, and governments. This is a print on demand report.
