Historical background


PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC - FRENCH INDO-CHINA

March 9, 1945, the Japanese army launched a surprise attack the French garrison which killed nearly 3,000 French in less than two days. This helps to destroy the colonial administration. Japan also encourages the formation of nominally independent regimes, within its sphere of co-prosperity of the Greater East Asia. In the aftermath of the Japanese evacuation, Laos and Cambodia are able to recognize their sovereignty smooth. This does not hold true in Vietnam, strategic and economic importance of any importance. The Vietminh and other separatist groups seeking to establish their authority over the country. At Potsdam, in 1945, Truman and Stalin, unfavorable to French colonialism, decide the division of Vietnam into two parts: the north under the influence of Chinese led by Chiang Kai-shek) and the south under the influence of British directed by Douglas David Gracey. General Leclerc and the second DB are sent by General Charles de Gaulle, leader of the provisional government to restore the authority of France and regain control of Indochina after World War II. Negotiations are open and lead to agreements of March 6, 1946 pursuant to which Vietnam is free (but not independent because he is part of the French Union). These agreements, signed by Ho Chi Minh and Jean Sainteny do not last. Leclerc regains Cochin but inevitable estimated term Vietnamese independence. The Vietminh attempts to ban the French port of Haiphong. The bombing of the latter by the French fleet makes the inevitable conflict. Follows the Indochina War, after which France left the peninsula in 1954 after the defeat at Dien Bien Phu. The Geneva Accords divide Vietnam temporarily into two states, but the failure of the elections reunification in 1956 led to the Vietnam War in 1964.
