Abstract: Even an investigation confined, in so far as it is at all possible, to the narrative of events taking place within the Congo's own borders, would encompass a labyrinth of paths and movements. Amidst the turmoil and confusion attributable to tribalism, to the many phases of Congolese and United Nations action within the Congo, and to the false dawns especially with relation to Tshombe and the reentry of Katanga into the Central Government, even the most avid student of the Congo crisis is at first belabored not to fall into an abyss of confusion while trying both to follow and to see in relation to one another the many and tortuous paths of action taken by the various elements and their leaders.
