Very little has been written about the U.S. Navy in Vietnam in the immediate post–Korean War era, nor has the magnitude of American participation in the resettlement of Vietnam refugees following the 1954 Geneva Conference been explored. Beginning in the fall of 1954, U.S. Navy ships, as a part of Task Force 90, helped to relocate thousands of displaced North Vietnamese to South Vietnam following the separation of the nation at the 17th parallel. What those sailors accomplished during the three hundred days of Operation Passage to Freedom forever changed the lives of more than 310,000 Vietnamese who traveled on their ships.In Operation Passage to Freedom Ronald B. Frankum, Jr. recounts the events surrounding this enormous humanitarian evacuation that was the American military’s first major involvement with the Vietnamese people. Based on archival research and interviews with more than forty sailors who participated in Task Force 90, Operation Passage to Freedom illuminates a mission that has been all but forgotten and also explores how the initial humanitarian involvement of the United States in Vietnam eventually led to massive military involvement in the 1960s and 1970s.

I was glad I read this book. Professor Frankum walks the reader through a period almost unknown in US/Vietnamese history, covering the time period just after the partitioning of Viet Nam into North and South. Probably few people know the US Navy was involved in moving large numbers of people from the north to the south (I didn't, and I'm ex-Navy).
The book tries to be two things: an academic record of Operation Passage to Freedom, and a look at the humanity involved in an operation of this type. While it succeeds, the mode shifts back and forth without warning, going from a dry recitation of facts to anecdotes of the refugees and sailors involved. I found myself skimming through the fact sections and enjoying the "people" sections, which are well done.
While Professor Frankum is not sparing of mistakes made, he tends to be more lenient with US forces (the French screw up, the Vietnamese screw up, the Americans perform in a fashion that results in less-than-optimum outcomes at times). I doubt his intended audience will mind.
Any student investigating this period needs to use this book as a major source. History fans who want a look at a forgotten chapter of Navy or American/Vietnamese history will also get something out of it.

My father served on the USS Calvert. I can't wait to get this book, one for me and one for my Dad. He knew it was being written, but has yet to see the finished product.
