Description

Vietnam is proud of its thousand year history of resisting the Chinese. In the later 19th century, when Europeans with their modern weapons were marauding all over the world taking stuff, the French moved in on Vietnam and the other nations of Southeast Asia. The Vietnamese never stopped resisting, and after World War II continued fighting until the French gave up and left.
