Blog post: Fall of the Soaring Dragon

Postby princess garnet » Mon September 18th, 2017, 8:33 pm

For those who are watching Ken Burns's new documentary "The Vietnam War" on PBS, here's a blog post by the Mad Monarchist about a pivotal moment in Vietnam in 1945:

For more about the last imperial dynasty of Vietnam, here's an earlier post about the Nguyen emperors:

There are profiles about each Emperor at the end of the post.

Hope this provides more historical scope to the 1st episode!
