Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum in Hanoi.

There is a multitude of Internet sites which contain material relevant to this topic, especially the Vietnam War component. It is, therefore, important to be discriminating. The following list is very selective.

The US Library of Congress country studies include extensive material on Cambodia, Lao and Vietnam. All cover historical aspects from the colonial period up to more recent decades (mostly to 1987).

For Vietnam (external website)

Another worthwhile site is the Asian Studies World Wide Web Virtual Library maintained at the Australian National University.

For Vietnam (external website)

Of the many sites devoted to the Vietnam War one which provides a lot of clearly listed links is based at the Canadian Department of National Defence, Canadian Forces College (external website)

A more specific type of source is the online version of  Robert McNamara's book,  In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam (external website)

Finally, for contemporary events it is worth referring to media sites. The Age (external website) newspaper, for example, has a special Asia online service with links to specific countries.

Time Warner Pathfinder also has an Asiaweek (external website) online service where the "Newsmap" (external website) enables direct links to specific country news.
