Douglas Pike Collection: Unit 01 - Assessment and Strategy (212) Finding Aid
Item Number: 2120000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

Unit One, Assessment and Strategy is comprised of printed material documenting what military and civilian leaders on all sides saw as their strategy and assessments of their success. The material is more political in nature than military due to Pike's position in Saigon as a Foreign Service Officer(FSO) attached to USAID, during which time much of the material was collected. These materials include 'back-channel' reports from Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker to President Lyndon Johnson, State Department bulletins, speeches and news conference transcripts of key U.S. government officials, sections of the Pentagon papers, USIS, USIA, FBIS, and, JUSPAO bulletins. Other primary sources include translations of enemy documents and interrogation reports of VC/NVA prisoners. Translations of North Vietnamese radio reports; and newspaper articles from Northern newspapers are also included. Secondary sources include foreign and domestic periodicals and newspaper accounts. Complimentary records held by the Archive include the Air Force's Contemporary Historical Examination of Current Operations(CHECO) Reports, Records of the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, Records of the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam, U.S. Armed Forces in Vietnam, 1954-1975, and U.S. Naval Forces, Vietnam, Johnson Administration and Pacification in Vietnam, The Kennedy and The Johnson National Security Files, and the Classified Histories of the National Security Council. Unit One consists of thirty-two linear foot of documents. The boxes and folders are arranged chronologically. The material bulks between 1964 and 1975. In each box, the folders are broken down into two categories: General Literature and Clippings. General Literature folders mainly hold the primary documents of that period while the Clippings files mostly contain secondary sources. Almost all of the sources are in English, though there are some French and Vietnamese documents. Overall, the documents are in good or excellent condition with no access restrictions.
