Re: Query: National Liberation Front [Moise]

Dear Prof. Kirkendall and H-Diplo Members:

In regard to the National Liberation Front (or the Provisional Revolutionary Government, essentially a new name for the same organization) and its role in the ending of the Vietnam War:

1) The first place I would look for the role of the NLF/PRG in relation to the Paris peace negotiations would be Robert Brigham’s book Guerrilla Diplomacy.

It is not my impression that the NLF/PRG played an important role in the negotiations, but I cannot claim expert knowledge on this subject.
