Hoang Xuan Lam Biography »
Hoàng Xuân Lãm (1928 –) was a general in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) and a native of the city of Hu?. Given responsibility for the I Corps Tactical Zone in 1967, Lãm coordinated the South Vietnamese offensive known as Operation Lam Son 719 which aimed at striking the North Vietnamese logistical corridor known as the H? Chí Minh Trail in southeastern Laos during 1971. A great deal of the blame for the failure of the operation rested on his shoulders, since he displayed little operational control over his forces and could not cope with the massive People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) counterattack that pushed South Vietnamese units back over the border.
