Cochin China. Vietnam 1930s. Memories of Vietnam
Relations between the French and the Vietnamese varied greatly. In the South there was an appreciation of French culture. The North were mostly opposed to French dominance.
I have always felt that the spread of French culture around the world has been a force for good. In France today if there are problems with their colonial past the questions concerning Vietnam are never raised; and there are many.
