Conflict in Vietnam

The Vietnam War (1964-75) was one of the 20th century's most divisive conflicts. Emerging partly from Cold War tensions and partly from Vietnamese nationalism, the Vietnam War engulfed a nation, shaped a generation and had an indelible impact on attitudes, both in Vietnam and the West.

Now, you can explore the background, causes, effects, events and people of the Vietnam War - all on your iPad! Conflict in Vietnam for iPad contains 33 chapters, written especially for this app by Alpha History authors and qualified historians (no public domain or Wikipedia content).
