This chapter discusses the arrival of Eisenhower's Republican administration in the fight to defeat the communists in Indochina and to secure French support for the EDC. John Foster Dulles was the most committed in the Eisenhower administration to see a military victory in Indochina and earn ratification of the EDC. However, it was Stalin's death in March 1953 that broke the deadlock in the French and Vietnam War, and subsequently forced the Eisenhower administration to confront another challenge.

Keywords:   Eisenhower, Republican administration, communists, Indochina, French support, EDC, John Foster Dulles, Stalin
