What occurred in a divided Vietnam in the aftermath of the Geneva Accords?
How did so many die during the North Vietnamese “Land Reform Campaign”?
Why was South Vietnam described as an ‘emerging fascist state’?
Time Period Covered 1954 - 1963
In this first part of a kind of mini-series on the origins of the Vietnam War, Lachlan investigates the state building in the divided Vietnam. Exploring the ideology and benefactors of the separate regimes, we touch upon the thousands of those who died during the efforts to revolutionise the North – as well as similarly draconian methods to consolidate power in the hands of one family in the South.
