Chapter 7, “A National Church in Revolution and War,” situates the emerging national church in Vietnam in the context of the August Revolution and First Indochina War, which led to the end of the French colonial empire in Indochina. It explores how revolution and war both accelerated the transition to a national church, independent from missionary authority and tied closely to Rome, as well as how the communist-led revolution in Vietnam at first inspired many Vietnamese Catholics but ultimately led most of them toward anticommunist movements, with their base of power in the southern Republic of Vietnam during the immediate postcolonial era.
