“Crack the sky, shake the earth” [we are] “about to inaugurate the greatest battle in the history of our country…”

Differing strategies, political doctrine, cultural ideologies, popular opinion; both for and against, are defining characteristics of the Vietnam War. Lasting nearly twenty years and claiming the lives of over two million people, it has left a distinct imprint on international politics and the “hearts and minds” of countless others around the world.
Beginning in November of 1955, with the exit of French military forces from former ‘French Indochina’, United States support originally began as a containment strategy to limit communist expansionism by the Soviet Union and its allies. A partition at the 17th parallel divided Vietnam into a communist supported North and democratic South following a rigged election in October 1955 by Ngo Dinh Diem.
Large scale, organized dissidence erupted across South Vietnam between 1954 and 1957, but was not effectively quelled by Diem’s government. By mid 1958 increasing levels of violence and political disobedience reached a level where legislation permitting “death and property confiscation” was enacted for acts of violence.
In March of 1956 southern communist leader Le Duan proposed a plan to other members of the Politburo to revitalize insurgency in South Vietnam; the proposal was unequivocally rejected, however limited measures to revitalize the insurgency were approved in December.
North Vietnamese communist leadership approved a ‘people’s war’ on South Vietnam at a session in January 1959. The first arms delivery via the ‘Ho Chi Minh Trail’ through secluded and mountainous areas of Laos was completed by August. Laos was invaded by North Vietnam that same year and used over 30,000 troops quickly construct routes for the movement of troops and supplies through areas of Cambodia and Laos. Between 1961 and 1963, 40,000 communist troops infiltrated into South Vietnam; coordinated North Vietnamese offensives exploded across the country the following year.
