Vietnam was part of the Imperial China Empire for about a thousand years from about 100 BC . It gained independence at the Battle of the Bach Dang river in AD 938, and was then led for hundreds of years by a succession of Vietnamese Royal Dynasties.

Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost nation on the Indochina Peninsula. It is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, and Cambodia to the southwest. On the country's east coast lies the South China Sea. With a population of over 85 million, Vietnam is the 13th most populous country in the world. The country has the second fastest growth rate among countries in East Asia and the fastest in Southeast Asia.

With the advent of European colonial imperialism, Vietnam became a territory controlled by the French. It remained that way until WWII, when the Japanese took over the territory for a while. After WWII the Vietnamese fought a series of guerrilla wars with the French, expelling them in 1954.

The country was then effectively split into two countries, North and South Vietnam, the north with a communist idealogy, and the south somewhat more free, but very corrupt.

The two sides entered into a war of aggression, with the USA coming in on the side of the South. That war ended with victory by the North, and Vietnam became a unified, communist, country, in 1975. It remained isolated and impoverished until 1986, when the country opened up to foreign investment, and is now a bustling capitalistic economy but with a Communist style Central Government (patterned after that of Mainland China).

Location of Vietnam in S.E.Asia

Vietnam is officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (SRV; Cộng hòa Xã hội chủ nghĩa Việt Nam. It is on the eastern coast of the Indochina Peninsula of Southeast Asia.

Vietnam was part of the Imperial China Empire for about a thousand years from about 100 BC . It gained independence at the Battle of the Bach Dang river in AD 938, and was then led for hundreds of years by a succession of Vietnamese Royal Dynasties.

With the advent of European colonial imperialism, Vietnam became a territory controlled by the French. It remained that way until WWII, when the Japanese took over the territory for a while. After WWII the Vietnamese fought a series of guerrilla wars with the French, expelling them in 1954.

The country was then effectively split into two countries, North and South Vietnam, the north with a communist idealogy, and the south somewhat more free, but very corrupt.

The two sides entered into a war of aggression, with the USA coming in on the side of the South. That war ended with victory by the North, and Vietnam became a unified, communist, country, in 1975. It remained isolated and impoverished until 1986, when the country opened up to foreign investment, and is now a bustling capitalistic economy but with a Communist style Central Government (patterned after that of Mainland China).

It is a country of dense jungles and an interior of high mountains, requiring the use of terraces, as shown in the picture at the top of the page, to provide level ground for the growing of rice and other food staples.
