5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding and excellently written, May 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cauldron of Resistance: Ngo Dinh Diem, the United States, and 1950s Southern Vietnam (The United States in the World) (Hardcover)
This is a fresh look at the dynamics of the complex political, religious, and social life in South Vietnam during the transition years between French occupation and the United States' escalating involvement. Ms. Chapman reveals actions and motivations for many of the characters involved - both Vietnamese and American. She clearly defines the misunderstandings and miscalculations that led to further confusion in an already chaotic situation. Reading Cauldron of Resistance helps one understand why South Vietnam became so vulnerable to Northern invasion and eventual takeover. There is definitely a lesson for the United States to be more aware of local political, religious, and social dynamics when becoming involved in other countries in the future.
