This map is very good. In the map it is stating clearly the sea 東洋大海 (dong yang da hai) Great East Sea, same as we call it Biển Đông in Vietnamese. It means Chinese accepted that East Sea and Islands belong to Vietnam in past. No where is South China Sea 南 海.

Now with all that said, China did put up a good fight with the limited technology and experience it had, ironically your best equipment was German as was the training of some of your divisions.
Ho Chi Minh declared independence of Vietnam on Second September 1945. ROK and Britain's soldiers came to Vietnam to un_militerized Japanese troops only.
In fact Japanese have been transferred to Ho Chi Ming's VNA parts of their weapons. That why Vietnamese hatred Japanese Nazists but not Japanese people. Some Japanese officers didn't turned back to Japan, they joined to VNA to fighting counter France Army in Vietnam war.
this is the appetitiser:I know nothing about that and if you have some links for me to read i'd be very thankful.
In December 1965, Ho Chi Minh and the North Vietnamese leadership ordered a change in a way the war in the South was to be fought. From now on, the Vietcong would avoid pitched battles with the Americans unless the odds were clearly in their favor. There would be more hit and run attacks and ambushes. To counter the American build-up, Vietcong recruitment would be stepped up and more North Vietnamese Army troops would be infiltrated into South Vietnam.
The Vietcong, following the example of Chinese guerillas before them, had always given the highest priority to creating safe base areas. They were training grounds, logistics centers and headquarters. They also offered secure sanctuaries for times when the war might go badly.

that might be the case of German supplies which I am not aware of. History told us imperial invasion wont lastNow with all that said, China did put up a good fight with the limited technology and experience it had, ironically your best equipment was German as was the training of some of your divisions.
all except time is debatable here...by that time Japan had also a huge expanse of land and a series of local puppet governments installed which would account for familiar terrain and manpower in that equasion above.
This in turn lead to their attack on the US and from there on it largely went downhill everywhere.
