Vietnam: The Two Wars

Part 1
Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  February 10, 2018

Examine how the seeds of Vietnam's future were sown while it was still a colony of France. After the defeat of the occupying Japanese forces in World War II, Vietnam became an unstable land, a land where new alliances were forged and the balance of power continually shifted during its war of independence against the returning French. Long held resentments and beliefs would foster the conflicts still to come; conflicts that would give this small, remote country a central place in world history.
