Cold War Project - Maps

This map generally shows the main attacks of the communist Vietnamese, which are the red lines. On the bottom-right map, the victorious seige of Saigon is being illustrated. All of these maps are just to show how the communist forces advanced in Southern Vietnam during 1975.

When I look at, this map I was able to picture how the countries of the world were divided into two sides between the USA and the USSR. By studying the map, I learned how the non-communist countries grouped together to compete with the communist countries. I also see how Europe is being divided by the two power countries during Cold War and how other communist countries, such as China and Cuba, also sided with USSR during some parts of the war.
