Since then the country has seen many wars mostly involving boarder issues with neighboring China. The country has been through many civil wars along with fighting enemies abroad at the same time. Vietnam was not on the radar of most powerful countries until the French Indochina war in the mid-nineteenth century. Then again, during the Second World War with the Japan Empire over taking Vietnam and forcing all that opposed to force labor to work for the Japan Empire’s war machine (Elanor Jane Sterling, 2007). After the turn of World War II, the country forced into yet again a civil war between the communist and the people’s republic of Vietnam.
Sau's image is classic in the Vietnam War films as it creates a pattern that suits the patriarchal society of Vietnam. The film also reflects a real war in Vietnam. Vietnamese women are always framed within a Confucian framework, closely tied to their role in the family, but in the war, the traditional role is broken, they have been long not only caring people, supporters in the rear, they are also warriors. Vietnam is probably one of the few countries, if not the only country in the world, to produce many female generals who have fought for independence
Therefore, Ho had to put down the French and Japanese harshly, citing the war crimes that they have committed against the Vietnamese, to justify Vietnam’s “right to be a free and independent country” . Ho, through this speech, had to unite his people as one, and justify the country’s independence domestically and internationally because Vietnam was in a limbo state when Japan left and the French had not yet returned. Domestically, when delivering the speech, Ho condemned the actions of the French and Japanese harshly in an attempt to unite the people. For instance, he exaggerated the war crimes that the French enacted on them, such as forcing them to use opium, separating Vietnam into different regimes, and wrecking their unity . However, we must also consider the long-term gains that the French had given Vietnam.
Between being colonized by the Chinese or by the French, Vietnam has throughout its history been either dominated directly by or at least influenced politically by a foreign power. The French began directly ruling over Vietnam in 1887 after winning a series of wars in the name of extracting coal, rubber, rice, and rare minerals. However, the birthplace of the Enlightenment and resulting French Revolution provided little in return, intentionally leaving Vietnam to be grossly illiterate, lacking any modern industry, and dependent upon France. In opposition to the exploitation, the Dong Du, a Vietnamese independence movement inspired by Japan's anticolonial success against Russia in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905, grew within a community
Their Escape from the War The Vietnam War was a difficult time for soldiers and the people on the home front. The soldiers were experiencing a completely different type of war, guerilla warfare. It was complete chaos and there were no organized battles or anyway to get a good attack on the Vietnamese soldiers, or the Vietcong as they were called. The soldiers were having to do unethical things and go against their will by killing these people. Sometimes even children and women had to be killed or at least threatened to get information out of them.

Unfortunately the Viet Minh was still not capable of threatening the French troops especially due to a lack of arms but Ho did not see any other opportunity than launching a war in 1946 against the French. The First Indochina War had started and was a rebellion against the French 's abandonment of the negotiation settlements and their even more violent and oppressing rule than before the World War. Ho, perceived by many scholars as peaceful, had to accept “the inevitable and issued a personal appeal to the 'entire people ' to wage the resistance war”14. The war was a bloody war, costing many lives on the French but especially the Vietnamese side but eventually, although predicted differently lead to the victory of the Vietnamese over the French. A significant moment in history as it was the first time a colonial power was defeated by its colony.
