In 1940 some Vietnam thought it was the right time to overthrow French rule and achieve independence. Then Chi Minh and Nguyen Vo Giap set up the League for the Independance of Viewtnam in Southern China.
So what are we going to do about Vietmanh?
The US helped by training and equipping Vietminh. In 1944, they were ready to begin the guerrilla attack against the Japanese in North Vietnam. They were small scale attacks which increased support. In 1945 the Japanese were defeated in the WW2.
Ho Chi Minh announced that Vietnam was an independent and democratic republic. At first the USA liked this idea. However, it was short because the French restored control over South Vietnam-this drove Ho Chi Minh into the jungles of North Vietnam.
Vietnamh win a decisive battle over French at Dien Bien Phu. An international meeting is held and divides Vietmanh in two, until elections. The North communist and the South is ruled by Diem and non communist.
The South, backed by America, refuses to hold elections. Civil war breaks out between North and South.
North Vietnamese attacked US navy in the Gulf of Tonkin. The Tonkin incident gave US excuse to escalate the war. US Congress passed the Tonkin resolution to allow Johnson to fight a war against North Vietnam, This allowed the US to begin bombing North Vietnam.
