Vietnam's resisting America war is a very significant local war after World War n, and also the longest war in which the People's Republic of China had participated directly and indirectly . Its influence is far beyond the local bounds of the Southeast Asia. It has a great effect on the world structure and international communist movement. The assistance that the PRC had given to Vietnam exceeded $200 billion, the China's energetic supports in every respects is a pivotal factor to Vietnamese victory. We can say China's influence is everywhere in the Vietnam war.In general, the cold war history is displayed as the rivalry and confrontation between two super powers, but in Asia. In a long time, it was more displayed as the confrontation between China and the United states. For a long time the U.S. government pursued a stiff policy of isolation and containment towards China, and was apathetic to the New China's efforts of moderating Sino-U.S. relations in the 1950s. Facing the U.S. government obstinate anti-China, anti-communist policies, Mao Zedong gradually gave up the detente policy to the U. S., and began to take the drastic counter measures. He encouraged and supported international independence and liberation movements to counter against America's containment policy towards China, and at the same time had a stout fight against Soviet Union's attempt to sacrifice Chinese interests in return for dominating world with U.S. together.In the 1960s, IndoChina became the fighting focus between China and the United States step by step. The Vietnam's resisting America war not only was a war that the Vietnamese struggle for liberation and unification, but also a fierce fight of containment and anti-containment, supporting revolution and supporting counterrevolution between China and the United States. In face of the simultaneous threats from Soviet Union and the U. S., the PRC experienced the most rigorous test since its founding. Mao ZeDong's wise decision on the Vietnam war, not only effectively supported Vietnamese liberation, gave the reactionary forces in southeast Asia a heavy blow, but also made a necessary precondition for Sino-lf.S. relationship normalization. In the late 1960s, in face of new international situations, Mao ZeDong decidedly adjusted foreign policy, accomplished Sino-U. S. compromise, and created a new opening for China's foreign work.
