Hi, I'm new to the forums but have an essay and was looking for some ideas on how you would structure an essay on the impact/ success of north Vietnamese nationalism in the war. I know that it was important, but I'm having trouble nailing down exactly how to discuss its impact. Also would the many political camps/ inductions by Ho Chinh also be relevant?

Question- To what extent did North Vietnamese nationalism contribute to a USA defeat?
