Landscapes of Insurgency and Counterinsurgency in Vietnam's Ben Tre Province, 1940-1975

Summer research and writing on East Asian History, Military and U.S. History.

This project challenges existing interpretations of insurgency and counterinsurgency warfare during the Vietnam War. It does so by examining the war in the Mekong Delta province of Ben Tre. Instead of focusing solely on the military theories and strategies employed by U.S. commanders in Ben Tre, this project considers American military operations in the province in conjunction with the actions, decisions, and perspectives of various Vietnamese actors (both communists and non-communists). This project also employs an ecological approach to demonstrate the ways in which Ben Tre's diverse landscapes shaped the wartime activities and experiences of both Americans and Vietnamese. This project will incorporate research in Vietnamese archives and libraries in Ho Chi Minh City, as well as field research in Ben Tre.
