Abstract:

The report presents a collection of translations of documents pertaining to political indoctrination and military training in a Viet Cong unit operating in the Mekong Delta. In Vietnamese Communist practice, the training of troops includes both indoctrination and conventional military instruction. Political indoctrination aims at giving the fighter a firm Communist ideological stand, arousing his hatred of American bandits, and convincing him that the Party is the supreme guide.
