Almost half correct but sort of turned around a bit. The Korean War began that way in 1950. Thebegan by infiltration in 1955 (slowly escalating in guerrilla buildup and strength). The war ended by a North Vietnamese Army invasion of RVN (Republic of ).
The publication of the Pentagon Papers The people were basically fighting a war for no reason. Ordering the invasion of Cambodia Ordering the bombing of North Vietnam during peace negotiations
To prepare for the United States invasion of Laos.
Historians normally "begin" the date in 1961.
Vietnam became independent from France after World War II, when the Japanese War in the Pacific triggered the invasion of French Indochina in 1941. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vietnam#History
Alright. The Vietnam War begin because the U.S. president, Eisenhower didn't want communism to spread throughout the world and eventually to America. The war ended because the north and south of Vietnam signed a treaty.
North Vietnam wanted to re-unite with South Vietnam. If the North hadn't been a communist nation, nor supplied by the communist superpowers; quite possibly the US would've stayed out of it. But that couldn't have happened anyway...it was the communist superpowers that backed the Viet Minh force against the French to begin with in 1946...which inherently caused a NORTH & SOUTH Vietnam.
There was a NORTH Vietnam and a SOUTH Vietnam, and they fought each other, the normal starting date used by many historians is 1961. However, North and South Vietnam were separate nations. They were never just one Nation called VIETNAM until 1975. Consequently, this was no civil war. A civil war is ONE country fighting itself.
The war in South Vietnam began by infiltration (slowly like cancer). The war against North Vietnam commenced after the Tonkin Gulf incident (two sea battles in August '64).
1954-End of French Indochina War 1956/1957-North Vietnamese MIG-17 Pilots begin training in Soviet Union/Red China 1973-US Re-deploys combat troops from South Vietnam 1975-South Vietnam falls to North Vietnam/War Endsbecame Communist and reunited with North Vietnam
Most Historians like to use 1961 as the starting point for the war. The Vietnam War was NOT a civil war. A civil war is two armies from the same nation fighting itself. North Vietnam & South Vietnam were separate countries. They were never one country called Vietnam until 1975.
1. US Civil War-North fought to keep the union together. 2. Vietnam War-North fought to re-unite with the south.
The air attack on North Vietnam began on 2 March 1965 and was sustained until 1 November 1968 as Operation Rolling Thunder by the 7th US Air Force, the Republic of Vietnam Air Force, the US Navy and the CIA's Air America.
LBJ was the first US president to send conventional combat troops to RVN and the first president to begin openly bombing North Vietnam.
What happened as a result of European exploration of north America's east coast? it lead Europeans to begin colonies on the coast.
Yes. The German invasion began on '1 September 1939.'
The D-Day invasion began on the beaches of Normandy.
The Allies began their invasion of mainland Europe at Normandy.
In about 1940.
US Military personnel arriving in South Vietnam were welcomed with the following phrase, "Welcome to the Republic of South Vietnam" (RVN). Or, at least that's what the female (males didn't do female work on airliners back then) airline stewardess said before the men disembarked from the plane. In a way, South Vietnam (RVN) was the primary reason the Vietnam War was being fought to begin with...to preserve it from being conquered by Communist North Vietnam. Well, the North won the war, and so to answer your question, "South Vietnam" used to be a country in Southeast Asia that existed from about 1954 until 1975 at which time it was consumed (conquered/defeated) by North Vietnam, and no longer exists.
