Some factors explaining why the North Vietnamese will probably not abandon the war. Arguments in favor of its continuation are formidable and are based on the Confucian upbringing and Communist ideology of Hanoi's leaders, the historical experience of the Vietnamese, and the reluctance of old men in Hanoi to give up a course of action that has been the mission of their entire adult lives.

Viet Cong (VC), in full Viet Nam Cong San, English Vietnamese Communists, the guerrilla force that, with the support of the North Vietnamese Army, fought against South Vietnam (late s–) and the United States (early s–). The name is said to have first been used by South Vietnamese Pres.

Ngo Dinh Diem to belittle the rebels. The second war was a civil war between the two zones created at Geneva: North Vietnam, governed by Vietnamese Communists, and South Vietnam, backed by American aid and, eventually, by American troops. The most admirable thing about this fall's PBS series on the Vietnam War is the way in which it forces American audiences to confront the genius of North Vietnam's strategy.

North Vietnam fought the Second Indochina War, or the Vietnam War as it was known in America, in order to reunite the entire Vietnamese peninsula under Communist control in Hanoi. Prior to World War II, Vietnam was a French colony, known as Indoch.

Caputo relates his Marine Corps experiences from the time he decided to join through his tour of duty, which began in March when he landed with the first Marines to fight in Vietnam. The last part of the book is an account of the North Vietnamese takeover in.

The book adopts a candid and critical look at the United State's stance and policies in Vietnam, and refuses to condemn, excuse, or apologize for America's actions in the conflict.

The North and South each use different words, phrases, and phonetic elements, so sometimes even they can’t understand each other.
