Fact of the Day: Japanese Vietnam

During World War 2, France's fall (by Germany) had led them to lose control of French Indochina. In 1945 Japan took control of Vietnam creating a puppet-state called the Empire of Vietnam. It only lasted about half a year until Japan lost control after their defeat at the end of World War II.

I'm so glad we got to see Vietnam in April and see that they appear to be doing quite well despite their turbulent past.
