The Vietnam War

~The Vietnam War was fought from November 1, 1955 to April 30, 1975 between communist leader Ho Chi Minh of North Vietnam and leader Ngo Dinh Diem of South Vietnam who opposed to communism.

~North Vietnam was supported by the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union while South Vietnam was supported by mainly the U.S.

~The first U.S. troops entered South Vietnam in March, 1965 after the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. By 1969, the war seemed never-ending, so the U.S. began to slowly withdraw troops from the area.

~In January, 1973 a cease-fire was established and the last of the U.S. troops were gone two months later.

~Despite the treaty, North and South Vietnam continued to fight.

~The Vietnam War officially ended April 30, 1975 when South Vietnam surrendered to North Vietnam.
