The Laotian Civil War: The Intransigence of General Phoumi Nosavan and American Intervention in the Fall of 1960 focuses on a specific event during American-sponsored “Secret War” in Laos. In the fall of 1960, General Kong Le overthrew the Laotian government that was established after Laos had declared their independence from France. However, Kong Le still recognized the power of the Laotian King, a person who was really at the mercy of the military generals. This thesis proves that General Phoumi Nosavan was intentionally uncooperative in negotiating a coalition government because he wanted to seize the city himself and appoint a Rightist pro-Western anti-Communist Prime Minister.
