In 1954, a set of documents called the Geneva Accords was signed, splitting the Vietnamese region of French Indochina into two separate countries called North Vietnam and South Vietnam. However, the Geneva Accords also included a provision that called for elections in the future to join the two into one unified country.

Well, after the First IndoChina War, Vietnam was split into two countries, North and South. North Vietnam were communists, while south was not. Many people believed in the Domino Theory, or the belief that once Vietnam fell into communism, the rest of SouthEast Asia will asl well. The Vietnam War was considered the Second IndoChina War. The Viet Cong were rebels in South Vietnam and they supported communism as well as the North. The United States supported South Vietnam. Viet Cong would hide in villages in the South which made it hard for the US to win. A saying was "I'd risk 10 of my men for one of yours [United States], but we will still win" The United States failed to win the war, which means SOuth Vietnam fell into communist North.

It was about the north and south, like America's Civil war, but then in Vietnam the French and then the American's stepped in. What I think though is it was a Civil War until France and America joined in. The reason why the United States helped the French was because they did not want all of Vietnam to become communists.
