The peace negotiations that took place in Geneva, following the French defeat in Vietnam resulted in the division of Vietnam into North and South. Ho Chi Minh and the communists took power in the North, while Bao Dai took power in the south.
NOTE – Vietnam was colonized by the French in the mid-eighteenth century. The struggle for independence and instances of resistance from French rule was often reflected in the years until the 1950s when the division of the country took place. Although independence came to the Vietnamese but at the cost of the division of Vietnam into North Vietnam and South Vietnam.
