Replacing France

Kathryn C. Statler

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses how the French struggled to redefine their relationship with Saigon after being “evicted” by the Americans from South Vietnam. At the same time, the French aimed to maintain a separate presence in North Vietnam. By 1960 the French had made a surprising comeback in the South, but had disappeared from North Vietnam. However, as they tried to maintain institutions in both the North and South, they were accused on all sides of conspiring with the enemy.
