People’s Army of Vietnam

Popularly known as the North Vietnamese Army, or NVA, the communist People’s Army of Vietnam today includes nearly a half million ground troops. Organized initially as the Viet Minh during the mid-1940s, the People’s Army of Vietnam opposed the Japanese during World War II and later fought against the reintroduction of French colonial rule. Ultimately, the People’s Army of Vietnam and its Viet Cong allies fought American and South Vietnamese forces during the latter phase of the Vietnam War from 1959 to 1975.
