What is The August Revolution? (1)
The August Revolution was a fight for independence's sake. Vietnam was tired of the poor treatment they received under the ruling of France and Japan. The president of Vietnam at the time (1945), Ho Chi Minh, decided to do something about this.
What is The August Revolution? (2)
Surprisingly, the Vietnam Revolution wasn't all that violent. There were no major battles, fights, or gory attacks on the opposing teams. It was relatively tame, actually. On August 19, Ho Chi Minh's Viet Minh troops marched into Vietnam's capital-Hanoi- and took over. Apparently they weren't met with that much resistance- there wasn't much, if any, casualties on either sides

Why was it called "The August Revolution?"
It was called "The August Revolution" because the most critical parts of the revolution all happened within the month of August.

Ho Chi Minh born as Nguyễn Sinh Cung on May 19, 1890 was a very important part of the revolution, he was one of the ones who started it all. He was a communist revolutionary leader who was the prime minister, and on top of that he was the president of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. He also led the Viet Minh independence movement starting in 1941 until it ended. HEYEAYEAYAY.

September 2, 1945
The August Revolution was a simple,quick, but necessary Revolution. You don't really hear much about this revolution, what happened,or it's role in history- you can't even find a ton of consistent sources on the topic. This probably has something to do with the fact that Vietnam has had many infamous battles/wars/moments after wards, especially The Vietnam War. But this little revolution gave Vietnam the independence necessary to be successful in those kind of endeavors, and that is why it will always be important- even if historians don't feel that it was.
The August Revolution
Bao Dai was the 13th and final emperor of the Nguyen Dynasty, which was the last dynasty of Vietnamese. In march 1945 the same year that the revolution happened he changed the name of the country to Vietnam. Before 1945 the country was known as Annam.

In 1945 he defeated the French Union. In 1965 he officially stepped down from his authority because of some health problems. On September 2nd,1969 he died, and a war happened some time later. Saigon the formal capital was renamed Ho Chi Minh City in honor of him.
