This fall, Dr Gary Hylander will be presenting a lecture series on the history of Vietnam. The series begins with an overview of French colonial rule throughout the 19th century to the end of World War II. The Battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954 marked the end of the French presence in Vietnam. With the onset of the Cold War, and the fear of Communist expansion throughout Southeast Asia, the United States became politically and militarily involved in Vietnam from the Eisenhower years to the end of the Ford presidency. The series will conclude with an examination of the current role of Vietnam in world affairs This is the first of four lectures in the series, and is sponsored by the Library Foundation of Needham.
