Ground war was in South Vietnam (official name was the RVN=Republic of South Vietnam). Air war was in the skies over North Vietnam.

Vietnam has never had a democratic government, so nothing has ever happened to this non-existent entity. If you are referring to the Republic of Vietnam (often called South Vietnam), which was a regime in the south of Vietnam from 1954-1975, this country was not a democracy. Although it has the word "Republic" in its name, it was really a state ruled by a strongman who was deeply beholden to US interests. As for what happened to this country, when the US withdrew military forces from Vietnam in 1973, the North Vietnamese Army overran the defenses of South Vietnam and conquered the country, bringing Vietnam into united Communist rule.

The American troops thought South Vietnam could finish the war alone and pulled out many soldiers. The South became weak and the North invaded. They eventually made it to the South Vietnamese capital, which I can't think of the name right now, and the remain Americans tried to pulled out as many civilians as they could.

Việt Nam - Vietnam (combine two words: Việt - the largest ethnic dominate this country, and Nam - the south) was adopted as the official name of the country by king Gia Long in 1804. Later, it was changed to Đại Nam (Great South). In 1945, the revolutionary government change it back to Vietnam again.

In many sources, it is just called " Nixon's Secret Plan to End the Vietnam War". A more formal name was Vietnamization. Nixon wanted to transfer all military responsibilities to South Vietnam so the US could withdraw its troops.

ANSWER Ho Chi Minh was the president of North Vietnam during the Vietnam War his original name was Nguyen Tat. Diem was the president of South Vietnam. Diem was assassinated Nguyen Van Thien was the president of South Vietnam after him.

Ho Chi Minh was prime minister of North Vietnam. He was important because he was the leader of the primary country we were fighting.Understanding the VC is going to take some explaining. In Vietnam there were four main armies. First were the Army of the Republic of Vietnam and the People's Army of Vietnam. The US referred to the PAVN as the NVA - North Vietnamese Army. Next were the various foreign armies in the conflict on both sides. And finally was the National Liberation Front - which were South Vietnamese citizens attempting to overthrow the South Vietnamese government. "Cong" is Vietnamese for communist, so the US called the NLF the Viet Cong. The Hanoi government controlled the NLF through an agency the US called the Central Office for South Vietnam, or COSVN. (The official Vietnamese name is long and grandiose.) Now here's where it gets fun: COSVN, although it ran the war in South Vietnam, was not in Vietnam - it was in Mimot Province, Cambodia.The importance of the VC was that it was providing the lion's share of Communist combat troops in South Vietnam.

The South China Sea lies between Philippines and Vietnam.

Before south Vietnam lost the Vietnam war it was called Saigon.

The name given to the dividing line between North and South Vietnam is the Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone. This was a result of participation in the first Indochina war.

North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Also, to name just a few: the USA, China, Russia, South Korea, Australia, France, and England. A great many countries fought in the Vietnam War from 1945 to 1975.

For North Vietnam or South Vietnam? The North Vietnamese were known simply as the 'North Vietnamese Army' (NVA) to US forces, but their actual title was Vietnam Peoples' Army, as it common practice in Communist states. The South Vietnamese Army was referred to as the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN).

South Vietnam; Ho Chi Minh city must be the conqueror's new name for the old Saigon. Saigon was the capital of RVN during the war (Republic of South Vietnam). RVN no longer exists of course. Neither. Since April 30, 1975, there has been no North or South Viet Nam: just Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh City is in Vietnam.
