This chapter discusses the first few important steps in the long transition from the French to the American presence in Vietnam. It assesses how, from 1950 to 1953, French leaders convinced a skeptical Truman administration that Indochina was much more than an exploited colony which was maintained for reasons of French prestige and grandeur. When the American officials insisted on being involved in French decision making, it marked the beginning of the eventual transition from French to American influence of events in Vietnam.
