Abstract : The study examines whether or not North Vietnam is bound by the Geneva Conventions of 1949 in the Vietnam Conflict. If North Vietnam, as a signatory to the Conventions, is able to deny the Convention's applicability at the very time it is needed most, the value of the international law in its present text is questionable.
