So far I've found a few stories about Poland's involvement in the Vietnam War:

Maybe you know any others?

  • H:SE discourages requests for references (unless they are canonical references as described in meta). We also discourage open ended requests, since every answer is equal to every other, and they risk digressing into discussion or even political speech. The question in the title is probably good; the question in the body is suspect, and may get closed. OP may wish to revise the question to align the title with the body and get the desired answers.This particular question may be worth discussing in meta since it seems different from many of the other requests for reference.

Mostly to supervise the enforcement of ceasefire and peace terms.

Polish involvement began in 1954 as a member of the International Commission of Control, together with Canada and India. That entity was setup at the conclusion of the First Indochina War to monitor the peace agreement. It was a general failure all around, resulting in the Second Indochina War when the United States eventually intervened in force.

The United Sates in turn began to disengage from Vietnam after 1973. The agreement dissolved the ICC and replaced it with the International Commission of Control and Supervision, of which Poland was once again a member. As before, the commission was tasked with monitoring the implementation of the peace agreement, which similarly failed.

  • Why "mostly"? I suppose also that any intelligence activity is secret there? Commented Apr 7, 2015 at 10:11
  • @MarianPaździoch They also made some abortive attempts to broker peace. But the major notable activities were supervising the ceasefire, as described above.
