Losing Vietnam

Ira A. Hunt

University Press of Kentucky

The opening chapter provides a background of the atmosphere after the Agreement in Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam, also known as the ceasefire agreement. Most Americans assumed this would be the beginning to a stable and lasting peace in Vietnam. When Hunt was made USSAG deputy commander stationed in Thailand, he was alerted to ongoing ceasefire violations claimed by both the Viet Cong and South Vietnam. It also details the establishment of The Little Pentagon in Nakhon Phanom in Thailand, north of the Vietnam demilitarized zone.
