Few people realize that our involvement in Vietnam started during WWII when we helped the Nationalists in their fight against the Japanese.  

After the war, the English and the French rearmed the Japanese to help put down the Nationalist Revolt.

Our role changed during the 50's with our support of the French and changed again with the fall of the French regime.
