Letter, General James A. Van Fleet to President Rhee
This document was made possible with support from Syngman Rhee Institute, Yonsei University
General Van Fleet first addresses the two sides of the Asian question. Should the US 1) try to “win back Asia” or 2) face the "reality" of the present conditions and should not recommence fighting in Korea? He advises Rhee to concentrate on expanding the ROK army and to leave reunification matters to the US and the United Nations.
