The Marines in Vietnam, 1954-1973: An Anthology and Annotated Bibliography "The opening article of this anthology concerns itself with the beginnings of the Marine involvement in Vietnam following the Geneva Accords in July 1954, which ended the French war with the Communist Viet Minh and resulted in the de facto partition of the country at the 17th Parallel.
