Abstract:

The paper is concerned with the security aspect of the Government of South Vietnam That of gaining control of the rural population. A succession of pacification failures and a spate of bad publicity have seemingly combined to focus attention in the withdrawal plans mainly on the regular units. The paper is written with two purposes First, it is an effort to point out the need for development of an area security system before withdrawing from the country. Second, it is an effort to identify certain salient tactical components of area security and to suggest a more rapid buildup of the Combined Action Platoons program not by Americans, but by ARVN performing in keeping with the Combined Action Platoons tactical principles which have been developed and proven to work over the past three years.
