The Vietnam War

Vietnam’s history is one of war, colonisation and rebellion. The Vietnamese have been invaded time and again in the past by the Chinese, French, Japanese etc., and have managed to fight them off. The Vietnamese war (referred to as the American war by the Vietnamese) was fought between a communist North Vietnam and a non-communist South Vietnam from November 1955- April 1975. Though this was just one among the many wars fought by them, this was the most brutal having taken the lives of over 800000 Vietnamese and 50000 Americans.
