"Duong Van Minh wanted to end the fighting in order to save Saigon and avoid civilian casualties. As a general himself, President Minh knew only too well that there was nothing left to defend. He did not want to evacuate the government to the Mekong Delta as some of his generals had suggested. He just wanted peace."
