Honestly, everytime I am asked about history, I always like to talk about the Vietnam war against America, which lasted from 1955 to 1975.

You know, Vietnam underwent hundreds of years under the control of foreign invaders (kẻ xâm lược)  and this is the last war before a new era of peace and independence for us. 

I would like to learn more about this period for some reasons. Firstly, it is the fighting spirit of Vietnamese people. Our country was divided into Northern and Southern parts. Communication at that time was almost impossible and people across the country were living in poverty (sự nghèo đói). However, our army still fought with the help and support from citizens.

Secondly, this is remarkable because hardly anyone could think that we won the war. When compared to a country like America, we never thought that we could actually defeat (đánh bại) them. However, with the determination (sự quyết tâm) of the whole nation, we have our own peace back. Finally, we gained independence from the invaders and from then on, we have held events to honor those who sacrificed (hy sinh) for the country. I hope that Vietnamese people will never forget this important event  of the nation.

In short, this is one of the historical periods I want to learn more about the most.
