Abstract:
Developments during the past few weeks have made it clear that the Communists now plan to put extensive and sustained military pressure on the urban areas of South Vietnam. At the maximum, they hope to move in and control some of the major cities; failing this, they will try to bring about a deterioration of government authority in urban areas, as well as in the countryside. They would hope that the disintegration of the government position eventually would force a political accommodation in the war on Communist terms.
