12 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a concise edition of David Elliott's monumental history of the Vietnam War in a single province of the Mekong Delta over the period 1930 to 1975. More precisely, it is a study of the Vietnamese dimension of the war and the revolutionary movement that became popularly known as the Viet Cong. No other history of the Vietnam War has drawn on such a depth of documentation, especially firsthand accounts that allow the Vietnamese participants to speak directly to us."--BOOK JACKET

Changing worlds : Vietnam's transition from Cold War to globalization by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For most of the twentieth century, the country of Vietnam has served as a symbol of the bipolar system of rival ideological blocs that characterized the Cold War. As the conflict over communism waned in the 1980s, Vietnam faced the tough task of remaking itself as nation in the eyes of its people and of the world. In Changing Worlds, David W.P. Elliott, a participant in the Aspen Institute's U.S.-Vietnam Dialogue who has spent the past forty years working closely with the people and government of Vietnam, chronicles the evolution of the Vietnamese state as we know it today"--Publisher's description

Pacification and the Viet Cong system in Dinh Tuong, 1966-1967 by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
5 editions published between 1967 and 1975 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An analysis of the Viet Cong system in Dinh Tuong Province and its reaction to the 1966 GVN pacification program. Focus is on how the VC system is organized, how it functions, its strategy and tactics, and its reaction to perturbation. The system is shown to be a well-balanced, mutually dependent organization of military and political forces. In 1966-1967, the VC reacted tactically to GVN pacification by reemploying earlier village defense concepts and by harassing urban areas to force government units back to a city defense. Politically, they decentralized authority from district to intervillage levels and returned previously promoted cadres to supervise the areas. The analysis indicates that the VC operational balance could be upset by (1) interdiction of the communications process through controlling territory, intercepting essential cadres, or cutting LOCs; (2) denying VC military protection essential cadres, thereby reducing their effectiveness; (3) driving out Local Force units which inhibit GVN entrance into an area and which are indispensable for a delicate balance of force support and protection; (4) refraining from punishment of low level VC members, whose fear of GVN retribution locks them into the VC system; (5) pressuring the system at several points simultaneously to offset its capacity to overcome vulnerabilities

A look at the VC cadres : Dinh Tuong Province, 1965-1966 by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
2 editions published between 1967 and 1975 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Developments in South Vietnam's Dinh Tuong Province in 1965, according to the authors' analysis of interviews with personnel formerly in the VC or under its control, reveal important vulnerabilities in the structure and functioning of the VC cadre system. The VC movement has raised its demands on the population for manpower and economic resources; the GVN has maintained military pressure on its opponent and has held control of the centers of population. It has deprived the VC of important manpower and economic resources through its programs for refugees and defectors. At the same time, the village VC cadre finds himself confronted with (1) a conflict of loyalty to the VC with loyalty to his fellow villagers; (2) increased isolation from the villagers, who in many places throughout the province are withholding cooperation and in some instances manifesting overt hostility toward the VC cadres as representatives of a system that makes increased demands of them while postponing the promised time of victory; and (3) instances of favoritism, factionalism, and occasionally corruption among the cadres themselves.

The report presents a collection of translations of Viet Cong documents pertaining to the military activities of a demolition unit operating in the Mekong Delta. Most of these documents illustrate the unit's activities during extended intervals between military engagements, during which life was a succession of political indoctrination, military training, and Party activities. Other documents deal with military organization and management. They all disclose an elaborate pattern of interlocking channels of command, supervision, and reporting, from the battalion to the squad. (Author)
Documents of an elite Viet Cong Delta unit : the demolition platoon of the 514th Battalion by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
3 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report presents a collection of translations of Viet Cong documents pertaining to the structure and functioning of the People's Revolutionary Party (PRP) in a demolition unit. Control is vested in a Party Committee at each territorial echelon (from Region to Village) and is exercised through the Committee's Military Affairs Section, which governs the units in its area. The documents, including minutes of meetings, organizational guides, moral codes, and members' self-criticisms, recount in detail the activities that take place in the system. Of special note are the meetings to resolve problems of military discipline and effectiveness. (Author)
Documents of an elite Viet Cong Delta unit : the demolition platoon of the 514th Battalion by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
3 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report presents a collection of translations of the personal correspondence of members of a Viet Cong demolition unit operating in the Mekong Delta. These letters to friends and relatives reveal the hopes and fears of soldiers in wartime. Although they have a self-conscious tone, perhaps because their authors feared censorship, the contents are no doubt sincere. They impart a strong sense of group solidarity and social cohesiveness.

Documents of an elite Viet Cong Delta unit : the demolition platoon of the 514th Battalion by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
3 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report presents a collection of translations of documents pertaining to political indoctrination and military training in a Viet Cong unit operating in the Mekong Delta. In Vietnamese Communist practice, the training of troops includes both indoctrination and conventional military instruction. Political indoctrination aims at giving the fighter a firm Communist ideological stand, arousing his hatred of American 'bandits, ' and convincing him that the Party is the supreme guide. (Author)
Documents of an elite Viet Cong Delta unit : the demolition platoon of the 514th Battalion by David W. P Elliott ( Book )
3 editions published between 1968 and 1969 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The report presents a collection of translations of captured Viet Cong documents pertaining to the composition and personnel of the demolition platoon of the 514th Battalion. The documents cover the period from early 1966 to mid-May 1967, a time when the battalion was under-strength and only infrequently saw action. The unit spent much time training, reorganizing, and bolstering morale. In Party membership, the unit was of the elite. Even though under-strength, it contained a Party Chapter, usually found only at the company level. Seventeen personnel dossiers, compiled mostly by the men themselves, give accounts of battles, forced marches, and personal history that afford insight into Viet Cong practices and psychology.
