This introductory chapter discusses the American intervention in Vietnam, which began with an alliance known as the Franco-American alliance. It looks at the events that led to the formation of this alliance, especially the 1954 Geneva Conference, which represented both an end to the French military fight and a beginning to the American commitment to Vietnam. It is important to note that it was in 1950 when the first steps toward significant American involvement began.
