Vietnam War was a cold war that occurred in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. In the late 1950's, during the Eisenhower administration, Vietnam had split into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. North Vietnam after being divided went under communism shelter of China, Soviet Union, and other communist allies. While the South Vietnam resisted to go under communism and was supported by United States, Philippines and other anti-communist allies. North Vietnam was forcefully trying to capture South Vietnam and declared war against South Vietnam.
