      In the western part of the Thừa Thiên Huế province in Central Vietnam, the A Lưới Mountains were strongly affected by the Vietnam War (). They were a refuge area for the Việt Cộng and crossed by the Hồ Chí Minh trail, which served as a strategic axis for them. Numerous herbicide sprayings and bombings, including napalm, struck the mountains and had a greater intensity. Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this Air Force publication provides a detailed history of the Air Force role in Operation Ranch Hand, which saw eighteen million gallons of chemicals sprayed on an estimated twenty percent of South Vietnam's jungles, including thirty-six percent of its mangrove forests.

Intentional Release of Herbicides in Vietnam. It has been estimated that over 74 million liters of tactical herbicides were used in Vietnam during –, of which Agent Orange made up almost 60% (43 million liters) (see Table ).The amount of Agent Orange sprayed varied by military region: I Corps south of the demilitarized zone– million liters; II Corps– million liters.

From tothe U.S. military sprayed herbicides over Vietnam to strip the thick jungle canopy that could conceal opposition forces, to destroy crops that those forces might depend on, and to clear tall grasses and bushes from the perimeters of US base camps and outlying fire-support bases.

My article, “Reexamining the Effects of Agent Orange,” published in the February issue of Vietnam, was intended to help sort out the facts from the fiction inside the Agent Orange controversy.

But the military use of herbicides in Vietnam is not new, and its lasting effects will be felt long after a change in American war policy. Herbicides were first used experimentally in and.
