North Vietnam and South Vietnam. N. Vietnam wanted communism to take over, but S. Vietnam didn't. So on N. Vietnam's side were Russia and China, and a group of rebellious ppl called Vietcong. They were called the Communists. On S. Vietnam's side was the U.S. and SEATO (Southeast Asia Treaty Organization, consists of Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Thailand, and The Philippines.)
North against the South.
