Vietnam War
 
(1945-1975)
Glossary of TermsAfter World War II Vietnam was divided into two nations, a Communist North and a somewhat democratic nation in the south. The French tried to reassert its military, economic, political and cultural influence and after years of war they were eventfully driven out. The United States picked the mantle of support for the south and over time sent more and more troupes.. Eventually the United States also was forced out and North and South Vietnam were merged into one nation.
