History of Vietnam
The North was supported by Communist China and Soviet Union.
Ho Chi Minh had hoped his ideals of liberty and freedom would bring US support, but his Communist politics pushed US support to the South.
The South was supported by the United States.
The United States saw the emergence of Communism under Ho Chi Minh in the North as a threat.
