Abstract:

The report presents a collection of translations of Viet Cong documents pertaining to the military activities of a demolition unit operating in the Mekong Delta. Most of these documents illustrate the units activities during extended intervals between military engagements, during which life was a succession of political indoctrination, military training, and Party activities. Other documents deal with military organization and management. They all disclose an elaborate pattern of interlocking channels of command, supervision, and reporting, from the battalion to the squad.
