We will find why there was so much confusion and even disagreement among the troops fighting in the war. We will look at what led up to the actual war. Then we will learn about why the war happened. Although the war was really a civil war between the Vietnamese people, it ended up involving soldiers and civilians from China, the Soviet Union, the United States, Laos, and Cambodia.
