Histoire D'une Paix Manquée: Indochine 1945-1947
By Jean Sainteny
Amiot-Dumont, 1953, 260 pp.

A personal account of the early postwar period in Indo-China by the former French Commissioner in Tonkin. In the author's view the confused and fluid situation at that time held many possibilities, and he seems still of the opinion that an effective understanding with Ho Chi Minh might have been achieved.
