Abstract:

The memorandum is one of a series of studies of Viet Cong motivation and morale. It deals with the kinds of VC behavior without regard for changes through time. The policy significance of the findings is implicit. Part One on patterns contains the authors analysis and comments together with a limited number of quotations from the sources. Part Two on illustrations and elaborations gives further illustrative selections from the sources and follows the sequence of observations set up in Part One. The 328 sources of information analyzed by the study of Viet Cong devices for persuasion and coercion are listed in detail.
