Vietnam Natural Rubber,
Natural Rubber has a long history in Vietnam. The first plantation was founded in 1897, during the era of French colonialism. With the end of the Vietnam War, the Vietnamese government set out to once again establish Vietnam as a major exporter of Natural Rubber. The industry was reinvigorated by a US$ 32 million loan from the World Bank in 1996 to improve rubber latex processing technology to international standards.

For the Glory of France rests on the interesting premise that the Vietnam War started in 1945 with the end of the War in the Pacific. If the American government had taken time to listen to the pleas of Ho Chi Minh for friendship and support, he might have become the Tito of Southeast Asia, rather than an archenemy of the United States. Floyd Duncan has done a masterly job fusing fact with fiction to tell this sad tale with seamless precision. His fictional character is a composite of the numerous OSS agents who came to know Ho Chi Minh and his desire to be recognized as free and independent by the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
Former Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska. Recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor in Vietnam.
