Share you thoughts guys. I had this question as a supplementary for the CSDA trial as we hadnt done all of the Indo-China topic yet. This was almost exactly the same except it has that tricky bit on "North Vietnam' strategy in achieving victory".

Interesting question, combined a syllabus point with an area of study.

Question was pretty easy, basically same question from previous papers, just had to alter it a bit.

I basically took the perspective that Tet was an extremely significant element of North strategy, and although it backfired in the short term (ie militarily) it was extremely effective in the long term (on the home front).

But I also said it was not the most significant part of North strategy in striving for and achieving victory, I spent some time on their cultivation of a positive relationship with Southern peasants and their own administration (ie, letting Catholics flee south to strengthen themselves).
