Forgotten Modern History

In December seventy years ago the French decided they would stay in Indochina.  This set off a chain of misery which did not end when the Americans were defeated by Vietnamese communists in 1975 with the fall of Saigon. French occupation of Vietnam ended with their defeat at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954.  The Vietnamese Cambodian war then went on until 1991.

Billy Joel ~ We Didn’t Start The Fire

Please listen responsibly.

Perhaps we should all learn a little more forgotten history.
