"In this new, extensively revised and updated edition, Bernard Fall analyzes major developments since 1964, discussing such aspects as: the U.S. bombing of North Viet-Nam, and the corresponding shift in tactics of the insurgents; the gradual escalation of the war; the effect of U.S. air operations on Vietnamese civilians; the continued ability of the Viet-C?ng to control rural areas; the mounting of casualties on both sides; the political fortunes of the various Saigon regimes; and the Manila and Honolulu conferences. Utilizing material not available for earlier editions, Dr. Fall documents the origin, structure, and operations of the political arm of the Viet-C?ng -- the elusive National Liberation Front -- its relationship to Hanoi, and its role in a possible resolution of the conflict"--Jacket

Autrefois, maison privée by Bill Burke( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Photographer Bill Burke has taken annual trips to Indochina ever since he first traveled to Asia in 1982. Although he usually photographed the people, Burke became aware of how the architecture absorbed as much as reflected the region's history. Transfixed by buildings like the municipal offices built by the French in the 1860s, the vaulted railroad stations and post offices of the 1930s, and the art deco fantasy cinemas of the 1960s, Burke saw the region as an architectural museum, rotting in the humidity and untouched by economic ambition, and began to trace the cultural changes in the area through its architecture. In Autrefois, Maison Privée--the title means "once a private house, " and refers to the prevalent reappropriation of once private houses for municipal and government use--Burke captures the dramatic history of the area, from the influence of French colonialism through the rise of communism and the devastating effects of the Vietnam War, to the repopulation of Cambodia after the fall of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge and the opening of the area to capitalism. Burke's first entree into Indochina occurred during the period of Soviet control, a period of recovery that allowed for the current explosion of capitalism, which has already begun to devastate an architectural heritage that was well preserved in the deep freeze of socialism. What the B-52s and tanks didn't destroy during decades of war, developers from neighboring countries are busily replacing and defacing with their shrines of commerce. Autrefois, Maison Privée is the only book to delineate this transformation; featuring Burke's signature gritty layout and design, Autrefois, Maison Privee is a marvel livre deluxe of history, architecture, and photography.

Street without joy : the French debacle in Indochina by Bernard B Fall( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic account of the French war in Indochina, Bernard B. Fall vividly captures the sights, sounds, and smells of the savage eight-year conflict in the jungles and mountains of Southeast Asia from 1946 to 1954. The French fought well to the last, but even with the lethal advantages of airpower, they could not stave off the Communist-led Vietnamese nationalists, who countered with a hit-and-run campaign of ambushes, booby traps, and nighttime raids. Defeat came at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, setting the stage for American involvement and opening another tragic chapter in Vietnam's history

Intoxication: - Technik der Tarnung bei den Viets: - "De surcroît chaque soldat (Viet) en marche se recouvrait le dos et la tête d'un large treillis de fil de fer auquel il accrochait des branchages ou des feuillages en Rapport avec la nature du terrain à traverser. Des que le milieu ambiant changeait un tant soit peu, chaque homme avait le devoir de modifier en conséquence le camouflage de celui qui le precedait dans la file. Sauf en de très rares circonstances, la progression N'était jamais trop rapide pour Q'une unité Viet en marche ne prit le temps de modifié son camouflage lorsqu'il lui fallait passer d'une forte aux feuillages sombres à quelque clairiere d'un vert plus cru ou quand elle devait s'engager à Travers une rizière aux teintes brunatres". (p. 69). - "L'usage des pièges radio était courant et les Viets se servaient souvent de ce Strategeme pour attirer des avions à portée de leurs mitrailleuses anti-aériennes ou pour se faire parachuter du matériel destiné à un commando ou à un Petit groupe battant en retraite sous la pression ennemie à l'exemple du leur. Peyrol prit une décision que ses compagnons desapprouverent sur l'heure ; il ne repondrait pas à l'appel et ne ferait pas connaître la position du groupe. La suite prouva que ce Réflexe avait été judicieux ; l'Emission N'était, en effet, qu'un piège Viet-minh". (p. 79). - Pièges et engins de défense: - "De temps en temps, l'un des membres du rateau poussait un hurlement et ses compagnons le soulevaient hors de la vase ou de l'eau ; le malheureux était tombe sur une chausse-trape, de Fabrication primitive, mais d'un emploi efficace ; une simple Planche garnie de pointes d'acier de quinze centimètres de Long et capable de percer de part en part le pied d'un homme, fut-il chausse d'une paire de"pataugas" aux epaisses semelles. - La blessure qui entrainait habiteullement une infection, rendait l'homme indisponible pour trois mois au moins".
