A ruled country:

900 years of independence.
French troops conquered Saigon in 1859 and in 1883 force uncolonialized parts of Vietnam to accept the status of a French protectorate.
September 1940-1945, Japanese troops occupy Indochina.
1945, France attempts to establish herself again as a colonial power in Vietnam.

July 20, 1954 in Geneva, negotiators of the Viet Minh and France agree on the division of Vietnam into two states:  a communist North Vietnam and a capitalist South Vietnam.
April 1975, North Vietnamese troops occupy Saigon; Vietnam is unified.
From 1975 to 1992, many Vietnamese flee their homeland, taking with them their heritage, culture, and of course their cuisine.
