Vietnam and Cambodia
Vietnam shifted the burden of the ground fighting from American troops to South Vietnamese troops during the later stages of the war. This was called "Vietnamization".
Officially, from 1965 to 1975. However, US troops had been involved in Vietnam since 1955.
US Servicemen had been fighting communists in South Vietnam since 1955.
The us slowly pulled the troops out and handed the fighting over to the south vietnamese army
US Regulars were sent in 1965.
Yes, but their efforts were primarily involved in the air defense of North Vietnam.
President Gerald Ford pulled the last American Fighting Men out of Vietnam in 1975.
No. North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam. The US first sent military advisors and then fighting troops at the request of the South Vietnamese government.
The Americans used a process called Vietnamization to pull their troops out of Vietnam. South Vietnamese soldiers slowly took over the jobs of American soldiers in Vietnam in order to get troops out without causing much of a dramatic change.
Well before any US troops were sent to Vietnam. The Korean Conflict kicked off in 1950, and the ceasefire was signed in 1953 (although the conflict remains ongoing). The first American troops didn't arrive in Vietnam until 1954.
Vietnam, North and South Korea. Northern Africa
Canada Did not send troops to Vietnam.
Nixon's plan for Vietnamization was to slowly replace the American troops fighting in Vietnam with Vietnam troops. Slowly bringing the Americans out of the war and helping the Vietnamese people have control over the conflict.
Eisenhower and Kennedy sent military advisers who were not supposed to do any actual fighting. Johnson was the one who sent in large numbers of combat troops.
Yes, US covert operations, as well as communists fighting the Cambodian government; but they were insurgents. Not regular troops from another country, like was happening in Vietnam. The NVA were regular soldiers from North Vietnam moving thru neutral countries such as Laos and Cambodia-the US was at war with them! Cambodia/Laos were being USED. Then...Laos/Cambodia had their own home-grown communists fighting against them; insurgents. The US was too busy fighting regular troops from Hanoi.
Yes, but the anti-war people outnumbered (and where more out-spoken) than the supporters.
The United States withdrew troops from Vietnam, leaving the Republic of Vietnam fighting against the strong Communist force. As a result, Saigon fell into the hands of Communist party.
Basically, the Vietnamese sides, north and south, each had allies and supporters. These allies joined with the troops in Vietnam. The US was on the side of the south. They lost.
U.S troops never went to North Vietnam, that would have been an act of war and would have dragged the Chinese and the Soviets into the conflict.
U.S. president Kennedy said many troops to Vietnam to fight the Vietnam War.
Kennedy was the first president to send troops to Vietnam (others before him sent advisors, but not troops), Johnson escalated the number of troops... Nixon got us out of Vietnam.
