May 1955
New Republic;5/9/55, Vol. 132 Issue 19, p9
The article focuses on Hanoi, the capital of the new communist Democratic Republic of Vietnam. The city had lost its natural voice. In the main street the shops were shuttered, even the chemists and the cafes; the big French villas in the leafy boulevards were empty. French, in the desperate need they had of allies to keep the South quiet while they fought the main war in the North, armed the sects and supplied the leaders with money for their troops, but with the armistice payment ceased, French troops ceased to control the roads, the watchtowers have been left to crumble and anarchy has returned.
