Anyone can search the Job Guide using their own key words to find potential employers -- https://www.h-net.org/jobs/home.php
From time to time jobs that directly mention Lusophone Africa-related positions will be shared to this network, but many other jobs of possible interest can be found at the Job Guide.
Due to a typographical error, I referred to the "B-1" Battlefront in my last posting as consisting of the Mekong Delta, Saigon, and elsewhere. That should have been the "B-2" Battlefront. The "B-1" Battlefront consisted of the eastern coastal provinces of central South Vietnam. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a non-protected map to provide further clarification. Using the American/SVN designations that may be more familiar, the "B-2" Battlefront consisted of the southern section of II Corps., and all of III and IV Corps.
Is there a significent difference between someone being killed by a motar round or an artllery strike and someone being killed by exchange of face to face small arms fire? If there is, Tom Davis, my workmate, was so killed on 23 December 1961, and is often referred to as the first combat death in Vietnam.
BTW: For the record Davis would have been the real hero that day had he refused to participate in that 3rd day of a DF mission, which was continued into a 3rd day only to settle a minor turf problem between ARVN and the Police.
