About the Book

One of the least known operations in the Pacific Theatre in World War II was the United States Office of Strategic Services' clandestine cooperation with Marxist Ho Chi Minh and his Communist Việt Minh in Vietnam. (The Office of Strategic Services, or OSS, was a precursor of the Central Intelligence Agency.) Ho was waging a losing guerilla war against the occupying Japanese army.

For most of World War II, the United States considered Vietnam to be a relatively unimportant French colony to someday be reclaimed from the Japanese; but America showed little interest in enlisting Vietnamese aid in that effort. All this changed rapidly in March 1945. By early 1945, however, the war in the Pacific had shifted in favor of the Allies and the Japanese became increasingly suspicious of French activities in Vietnam. As a result, on March 10, 1945, Japanese forces launched Operation Meigo, a swift military takeover that effectively ended French colonial rule of Vietnam.

This book is a monograph to the brave Vietnamese who escaped the Communist seizure of South Vietnam and now reside in the U.S and who have adapted to American culture, learned English.
