What were the causes and effects of Vietnam War?

The First Vietnames War was an effort to remove Vietnam from colonial rule by France. It ended at Dien Bin Phu, however by this time tht US was already involved as a result of such things as the CIA's assistance with such things as "Air America" which had provided air transport and delivery elements during that conflict. The Second Vietnamese War or the Vietnamese- American war was simply a continuation of the conflict. US Forces were introduced as advisors to the South Vietnamese Military and the situation slowly and gradually increased. The end resulst was a unified Vietnam under Communist control. i guess that's okay. i would say to prevent the spread of communism. from the American point of view.
