I am Ho Chi Minh, and we need to bring north and south Vietnam together with communism!
I love communism
In 1959 Vietnam had been split into a communist region in the north, and a democratic region in the south.
The US must stop the spread of communism, or else the domino effect will happen!
The US went to war with Vietnam because they thought that if south Vietnam were to be taken by communism, nearby countries will fall into communism along with it.
One of our ships was attacked by a Vietnamese torpedo boat! We need to go to war!
US military offensives began to take place without a declaration of war. The US began bombing north Vietnam and taking multiple victories. Vietnam turned to guerilla warfare in the jungles of south Vietnam.
The Vietcong are wiping out south Vietnamese cities!
North Vietnam launched an unexpected strike known as the Tet offensive, which took South Vietnamese cities, and shook the american people back at home.
We need to start sending American troops home!
President Nixon Succeeds president Johnson. Nixon's pan was to build up the ARVN so they could fight the war themselves.
We are getting pulled out of the war! but the ARVN seems to be ineffective!
On January 27, 1974, a peace treaty was signed with Paris, ending the conflict. North Vietnam pushed through ARVN's forces with ease and captured Saigon, uniting the country under communism.
