Thanks to the archipelago characteristics that consist of many islands in the East Sea, Con Dao has an essential political, military, and economic position for both Vietnamese and international countries in the past and present. Due to the richness and diversity of natural resources, and important location on the international trade routes, Con Dao was not only a favorable place to build trading entrepôt and transshipment warehouses linking the East with the West but also helped to connect and shorten inner-Asia exchanging journeys. In the strategic vision of Western countries (from XVII century), Con Dao is a vital point in trade activities, contributing to the control and domination of the maritime route from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean as well as to ensure the exclusive right to exploit and accumulate capital in the region. Thus, in the XVIIth and XIXth centuries, both Britain and France competed for gaining economic and political advantages in the strategy of expanding influential spheres outside Europe. Through investigating their competition to monopolize Con Dao, this article aims to clarify the unique geo-economic and geopolitical positions of the archipelago, and demonstrate the connection between the role and place of Con Dao in contemporary Vietnam’s development strategy.

Poll-tax and labor-burden were popular financial systems in the early modern period and a noticeable character of French colonial system, including Vietnam. This order was established before the French conquered Vietnam. After building a colonial government in Vietnam, the French not only maintained this system, but also changed and modified it to apply in Annam as a special case study to force native labors in order to provide an important part of finance for the colonization.


From the late nineteenth century to the third decade of the twentieth century in Annam, the colonial government applied several modifications in poll tax and labor burden. Those changes focused on some main contents such as: limiting and then destroying the Nguyen’s power; close controlling the governments in villages and using them as useful tools for collecting tax and forcing labors; expanding the subjects of taxpayers, limiting the subjects who paid no duty and increasing the value of tax; transferring from tax by goods to tax by money; requiring a card of head-money for each citizen and modifying the taxpayers to control and manage labor for colonization.


Therefore, maintaining and modifying head-money and labor burden created a large income for the colonial government. It also made heavy expenses for Annam’s people, especial poor farmers. The increase of those taxes was one of reasons led to the revolution of people in Annam to fight against the French control.

As far as this subject concerned, most of the battles won by the revolutionary forces in the anti - America Resistance (1954 - 1975) have been carefully examined. Nevertheless, few combats that seemed not to be military victories of the revolutionary forces have been recognized to open an area, such as the battle of Linh An (20-9-1964). Based on new historical documents, this article helps to understand the fight of Linh An, a battle that did not bring military victory but had a significant political significance, especially when it took place in the middle of the Uprising movement in the rural region of central Vietnam in the second half of 1964 and early 1965.
