Key Figures of the Vietnam War


From 1965 to 1973, the United States sent troops to South Vietnam to assist in its war against the Communist regime of North Vietnam. In the end, the North was victorious, and Vietnam was reunited under Communist rule. This resource provides an overview of Vietnam’s history, a chronicle of the war itself, and profiles of people who played instrumental roles in and leading up to this long and bitter conflict—political and military leaders from North Vietnam, South Vietnam, and the United States, as well as some notable figures from the American antiwar movement.
