China and the First Vietnam War, 1947-1954

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This book charts the development of the First Vietnam War, considering especially how relations between the Viet Minh and the Chinese Communists had a profound impact in the course of the war. It shows how the Chinese provided finance, training, and weapons to the VIet Minh, but how differences about strategy emerged, particularly when China became involved in the Korean War, when the need to placate the United States and to prevent US military involvement in Southeast Asia became a key concern for the Chinese.
