The Vietnam War was a military conflict from 1959 to 1975. It began as a war between the communist North Vietnam and democratic South Vietnam. It eventually escalated into a conflict where South Vietnam received hundreds of thousands of troops from the United States and others, and North Vietnam received military aid from China and the Soviet Union. In the end, popular opinion shifted against the war in the United States, and the resulting pullout left South Vietnam under the control of North Vietnam.
