1 Pike, Douglas PAVN: People's Army of Vietnam
From the leading expert on Vietnamese communism, we have this extraordinary history of the growth of the People's Army of Vietnam. PAVN had its beginnings in 1930, in a mountain cave near the China boarder, with Vo Nguyen Giap and 33 others. With Ho Chi Minh's help, they built up this minuscule army from a semi-guerrilla status into a force numbering over 1 million in the regular army and over 3 million in paramilitary elements. Douglas Pike discusses in depth the relationship of this small, underdeveleoped country to Russia, to Marxist-Leninist doctrine, to China. He also accounts for Hanoi's victory in the Vitnam War and discusses the North Vietnam strategy tht has proved so successful against 3 of the world's great powers. 384 pages with index, bibliography, and appendices.
