Chapter Summary

This chapter looks briefly at the British role in Vietnam in the crucial year, particularly the crucial month of September 1945, and its relation to the main task it was set: the removal of the Japanese from South-East Asia. Gracey hesitated at first when Cedile approached him to apply firm measures against the Vietnamese, according to Devillers, because he knew London wanted no complications. The situation and prospects of the Japanese forces of occupation were a factor of uncertainty, and their reactions were to be reckoned with; by the end of the period they were of no consequence at all, and had completely ceased to be of any importance in the situation in Indo-China. During the same period, from being a security problem for the British and French forces, the Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh had become a figure on the stage of world politics.
