The scope of this study is three-fold. It attempts mainly to explore United States involvement in the Republic of Viet Nam from the perspectives of the history, the aims and the effectiveness of the pacification program.
The rationale for the use of such a method as pacification in the rural areas of the Viet Name may be traced back at least as far as the beginning of Western colonial interests there. Saigon submitted to colonial rule by France in 1885.
