  Language Arts Dean John K. Swensson: 

 "The Russians got involved because of the cold war and the fact that they 
  and Ho Chi Minh were both communists. Ho had studied in Russia, and
  been one of the cofounders of the French Communist party (in 1922) 
  and also founded the VN Communist party." 

  The best explanation of US and Russian involvement is in a book called
  BACKFIRE by Baritz."
