Abstract:

Cambodia and Laos shows that America's involvement in these 2 countries began in 1961, when Pres. Kennedy sent in teams of US Special Forces to aid guerillas against the Laotian Communists and their North Vietnamese allies, and continued through the resultant Communist Khmer Rouge victory in Cambodia. When the Khmer Rouge defeated the US-backed government of Lon Nol in 1975, an estimated 2 million peasant refugees faced starvation, terror, and, eventually, slaughter. Peace is at hand tells how, while American and Vietnamese soldiers continued to clash in battle, diplomats in Paris argued about making peace. After more than 4 years, they reached an accord that proved to be a preface to further bloodshed.
