Using a combination of sources, including interviews with a number of former members of the organization, Vietnamese scholarly publications and recent publications by American academics, this thesis project centers primarily on a narrative of the lives of seven Vietnamese student activists in Hue who joined the NLF-led Youth Association of High School Students for National Liberation in the Center of Central Vietnam in December of 1961. Through their accounts and recollections, this narrative investigates and seeks to identify the political and historical conditions that gave life to and fueled this disciplined, highly-motivated and determined revolutionary movement of high school and college students.
