Presentation Notes

This presentation assumes the viewer is familiar with Indochina history between 1945 and 1956, from Japanese occupation and capitulation through the end of the First Indochina War, fought primarily between the French and Viet Minh forces.

Working from this background, the presentation focuses on the formation of an independent South Vietnamese military as told through its postal history, and provides some context for early American involvement during the transitional period of 19521956.

The intention is simply to provide a brief sampling of the interesting collectable material from this period, with emphasis placed on postal markings more than on rates or the operation of the postal service.
