CHP-202-The History of China-Vietnam Relations Part 6

From Zhao Tuo to the present day, the history of the relations of these two great countries and frenemies is a great story.  In this episode we enter the 20th century and explore the end of French domination in Indochina, Vietnam’s fight to unify the country and the most recent Sino-Viet history. All three Indochina Wars will be discussed and the outcomes they produced.  Although this six-part series was only a simple 走马看花 overview of the subject, I hope anyone not schooled in the basics of this history is leaving the table satisfied.  Cảm ơn đã lắng nghe!
