From the Paper:

"While the conflict was centered around the 1960's and 1970's the actual escalation began several decades beforehand. Ho Chi Minh had been in exile for more than three decades when he decided to return under a shroud of secrecy in 1941. Once he returned he organized the Vietnam Independence League(Seeds of Conflict 1945 - 1960 This league teamed with the US to harass Japanese troops in the Jungle during World War II and to aid downed American pilots in their rescue. In 1945 with the end of WWII conflict continued between France and the Vietnam factions who wished to maintain a communist regime in Vietnam. This desire for freedom caused political conflicts and the next few years were spent trying to gain the independence that Minh spoke of that day. The United States became involved militaristically in 1950 when then president Truman authorized $15 million to the French by way of military aid. There are many conflicts between Vietnam and France for several years and when Dwight Eisenhower was elected president of the United States in 1953 he gave even more aid to France to prevent Vietnam from becoming a communist nation."
