Description
 
The Easter Offensive, and its ramifications, represents the most significant event in Indochina for U.S. policy in Jan.-Oct. 1972, and documentary coverage of the event dominates this vol., concentrating mainly on what happened in North and South Vietnam, policy formulation and decision making in Washington, and the negotiations in Paris. Only a very small number of documents relate to events and policy in Laos and Cambodia, and then only as they relate to events and policy in Vietnam. Documents in this vol. examine the link between force and diplomacy in U.S. national security policy toward the Vietnam war. In the period covered, force drove diplomacy. Only by recognizing this can the process by which Americaäó»s Vietnam war policy was formulated and implemented be fully understood. Controlling the process was a small circle of men, led by President Richard M. Nixon, and which included the Presidentäó»s Assist. for Nat. Security Affairs, Henry A. Kissinger; the Presidentäó»s Deputy Assist. for Nat. Security Affairs, Major Gen. Alexander M. Haig; and a few Nat. Security Council (NSC) officials trusted by Kissinger. This is a print on demand report.
