There had been another side to De Lattre: he had speeded Viet Nam independence; he had given the Vietnamese confidence by showing them that the West (in the concrete form of U.S. weapons) was backing them against the Communists.
The best France could do to make up for the loss of De Lattre's political talents was to increase the powers and scope of the cabinet minister responsible for Indo-China, and to shift that minister from Paris to Saigon.
In the political field there was a new Vietnamese united coalition government—something that De Lattre had laid plans for—pledged to raise a 120,000-man army against the Communists.
