Abstract

In the course of the U.S. war of aggression against Vietnam, the people's resistance struggle was endowed with enormous symbolic value by sympathetic European and North American observers. Here was the quintessential expression of a just war of national liberation, of revolutionary heroism, and of the ethical superiority of socialism. China, also an Asian socialist country, was hailed in these same quarters as Vietnam's most steadfast supporter in its "hour of trial."
