Ho Chi Minh and North Vietnam fought against France, America, South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines, Laos, Thailand and other Vietnamese soldiers during different stages of the war.The Vietnam war is divided into 4 general stages.1. The French phaseVietnam was once a colony of France, and was part of French-Indo China. From 1945 to 1954, the Vietnamese fought against French soldiers in Vietnam. France surrendered in 1954.2. The Vietnamese phase (civil war)After France pulled out, there were two groups in Vietnam contending for power: the Communists, and the Nationalists. It was agreed that the country would be temporarily divided, and that the Communists would control the regions north of the 17th parallel, and the Nationalists south of that line. The two regions were supposed to be reunited after general elections, but these were never held. So from 1954 to 1964, the war was between the Vietminh (Northern Vietnamese Army) and ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam, the south). Later, another group of Vietnamese fighters, called the Vietcong (or National Liberation Front) joined the war. The Vietcong was made up of Communist sympathizers in South Vietnam, and they joined the Vietminh to fight against the Nationalists in the South.3. The American phaseIn 1964, the US sent combat troops to aid the Southern Nationalists. At around this time, other countries like South Korea, New Zealand, Australia, the Philippines, Laos and Thailand also sent troops to help the South, at the urging of the US. The Americans pulled out in 1973.4. The Vietnamese phaseFrom 1973 to 1975, the Vietnamese continued to fight a civil war between Communists and Nationalists. In 1975, the Communists won.Source: Global Forces of the Twentieth Century - Second Edition by E. Alyn Mitchner and R. Joanne Tuffs
