Most Historians like to use 1961 as the starting point for the war. The Vietnam War was NOT a civil war. A civil war is two armies from the same nation fighting itself. North Vietnam & South Vietnam were separate countries. They were never one country called Vietnam until 1975.

VietnamIt was a civil war - North against south. AnswerIt was and it wasn't. 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.

There was no "Vietnam Civil War." A civil war is a war in which ONE country is fighting against itself. N & S Vietnam were TWO separate countries from the very beginning (in 1954). They only became ONE country (one nation) when the North won the war in April of 1975. The normal starting date for the war, chosen by most historians, is the year 1961. Today, in the 21st century, if Vietnam fought amongst itself, it would be a civil war; as it is ONE nation.

The Vietnam War was NOT a civil war. A civil war is one country fighting itself. Vietnam was never one country (until 1975); it was two countries...a North and a South Vietnam. Both were created on or about 1954. The US Civil War was a civil war; the US was one country...then tried to divide, which over course didn't happen because they fought a war to stay together as one nation. The North won, the South lost...the country remained the country. If the South had won, then there would have been two countries.

the division of Vietnam into two countries

They had a civil war between communist north and democratic south (backed by the US)

Just because it was a "North & South" war doesn't mean it was a Civil War. The definition of a "civil war" is one country fighting itself; like the American Civil War was, but is officially recorded as the "war of the rebellion" and/or "the war between the states." The Viet war was a war between two separate nations; North Vietnam vs the Republic of South Vietnam. They were never one nation until after 1975 when the north won the war. Even at birth in 1954/55 they were two separate nations.

It forced French troops to leave Vietnam and divided Vietnam into two countries. (A)
