Summary
Joseph Lawton Collins, a United States Army General, was the United States Ambassador to Vietnam during early US involvement in Vietnam. Collins recalls why President Eisenhower and Secretary Dulles felt that American presence was necessary in Vietnam and how it figured into the United States stance against communism. Collins also describes his arrival in Vietnam and the difficulties in dealing with Diem and Diem's lack of action. Collins confirmed that Diem's brother and sister-in-law were the real government power, that Diem lacked any administrative ability, and that the American aid Diem was receiving was crucial for the survival of that government.
