Vietnam, EU and Brexit

On March 29, 1973 the last US troops left Vietnam.

It is difficult to say how many died in the war. Experts say anything between 1.3 million and 3.9 million were killed.

That same year, January 1, 1973 The United Kingdom joined the then Common Market as did Ireland.

Today the UK government delivers a letter in Brussels to the President of the EU Council, Donald Tusk, signed by Theresa May, declaring its exit from the European Union.
