    B. France
    Explanation
    Ho Chi Minh formed the Vietminh to fight Japan and France. France was the correct answer because after World War II, France attempted to regain control over Vietnam, which had been under Japanese occupation during the war. Ho Chi Minh, a Vietnamese communist revolutionary, formed the Vietminh to resist French colonial rule and fight for Vietnamese independence. The Vietminh's efforts eventually led to the First Indochina War between France and the Vietminh, which resulted in the defeat of the French and the partitioning of Vietnam.

    • D.

      20

    Correct Answer
    C. 15
    Explanation
    President Harry Truman signed legislation granting 15 million dollars in military aid to the French for the war in Indochina. This aid was provided to support the French in their efforts to combat the communist forces led by Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. The United States viewed the conflict as part of the broader Cold War struggle against communism and saw supporting the French as crucial in preventing the spread of communism in Southeast Asia. The aid helped to fund French military operations and equipment, but ultimately the French were unable to defeat the communist forces, leading to the United States becoming more directly involved in the region.

The bombing of North Vietnam occurred later as part of the U.S. military intervention in the war.

It began on January 30, 1968, when the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces launched a series of surprise attacks on over 100 cities and towns in South Vietnam. This marked a turning point in the war, as it demonstrated the resilience and determination of the communist forces and shook the confidence of the American public in their government's handling of the conflict. Therefore, the correct answer is 1968.

The withdrawal of American troops was a significant event in the Vietnam War and had far-reaching consequences for both Vietnam and the United States.
