|Vietnamů What does that word bring to your mind? To many Americans, it is a horrible war that cost many thousands of lives. It brings to mind an era of turmoil that shaped American history. We want to change that limited view. Yes, Vietnam was a war that took place thirty years ago, but it is also much more. Vietnam is a beautiful country with a fascinating people. They have struggled against all odds, and prevailed through more than two thousand years of history. Today they are still struggling to claim their place in the world. The people of Vietnam may not ask for our recognition and understanding, but they deserve it.
This site is designed to educate students and people of all ages about the country of Vietnam. We include sections on the history of Vietnam, the Vietnam War, the government of the country today, the geography and scenery, and the people and culture of this unique country. Our viewpoints section includes interviews, reviews of books, our views about Vietnam, and a place where you can tell us and our visitors about any experiences you have had in Vietnam, or tell us any information that you have about the country. We hope that this site will help people learn about Vietnam, and encourage them to do more research on their own.
