South Vietnam was a countryside with US Military personnel LIVING IN IT. It was like living in 19th Century America, ON THE FRONTIER. No running water, No bathrooms, No toilets, No refrigerators, No micro waves, No stoves, No TV's, No theaters, No Swimming Pools, No cars, No Video Games (they didn't exist then), No CELL PHONES (they didn't exist then), No lap tops/computers (they didn't exist then), No GPS (they didn't exist then), No Fishing Licenses, No Hunting Licenses, No Air-Conditioning, No Football Games, No Baseball Games, No Soccor Games, No Golfing, No Bowling, and No Female Campanionship. Just eating trail dust from riding tanks, ACAV's (Armored Cavalry Assault Vehicles/M-113's). Or flying in helicopters and walking. Sleeping, eating, drinking foul water, fighting insects (mostly mosquitos), snakes, exchanging gunfire once in awhile, an explosion once an awhile, more sleeping, eating, trying to find a creek or river to clean up in.
in order to prevent South Vietnam from becoming communist like North Vietnam.
SOUTH Vietnam had motor scooters; seemed like every citizen of South Vietnam had a motor scooter!
South Vietnam. In the Vietnam war when south Vietnam lost the communism took over south Vietnam.Before that north Vietnam & south Vietnam were different colonies.
South Vietnam was an agriculture based society (a farming life).
South Vietnam would be like today's "Republic of South Korea" at the current 38th Parallel. Only it would be the "Republic of South Vietnam" at the 17th Parallel.
Which Vietnam is good North or South
South Vietnam is south of China
There IS no North and South Vietnam, only Vietnam. After the US withdrew combat forces from South Vietnam, North Vietnam violated the peace agreement, invaded and conquered South Vietnam. Game over.
There is no North and South in Vietnam. Just Vietnam.
There were four types of warfare occurring in Vietnam: 1. The Air War over North Vietnam. 2. The Riverine war in South Vietnam. 3. The Ground War in South Vietnam. 4. The Covert War in Laos/Cambodia.
North Vietnam moved to South Vietnam by rice rich right ?
The Vietnam war started in 1962. Because that is when it looked like South Vietnam was going to fall to communism
north vietnam won and south vietnam lost now south vietnam has toxic wate down there but north vietnam has clean water
France owned Vietnam until they pulled out in the 1950's, and the US stepped in. After that, Vietnam was divided like Korea into Communist North and non-Communist South, but North Vietnam never accepted the division and always considered South Vietnam as the part of Vietnam occupied by the enemy.
South Vietnam no longer exists.
South Vietnam was created in 1955.
South Vietnam ended in 1975.
Somewhat democratic South Vietnam was a member of the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO), so by treaty, we were obligated to help defend South Vietnam. We entered the Vietnam War to help South Vietnam stop Communist North Vietnam from their attempts to unify the whole country.
Just like the US. The Republic of South Vietnam had an Air Force, Navy, Army, and Marine Corps (supplied and trained by the US). The ONLY difference was the South did NOT use their Air Force to fight over the skies of North Vietnam. The Southern AF only supported their ground units in South Vietnam.They fought the north. South Vietnam had: an Air Force; Marine Corps, Navy, and Army.
No more North & South Vietnam; just Vietnam.
The north Vietnamese wanted south Vietnam reunited with north Vietnam
The Americans did not make war with Vietnam. There was no Vietnam. There were two countries: NORTH Vietnam and SOUTH Vietnam. NORTH Vietnam attacked SOUTH Vietnam. The US (Americans) defended SOUTH Vietnam. The US never invaded NORTH Vietnam (the US bombed it though). NORTH Vietnam invaded SOUTH Vietnam. NORTH Vietnam was (and still is) a communist nation. The US was against communism.
There was once a South Vietnam in the 20th Century; there is no, nor has there been, a South Vietnam in the 21st century.
North Vietnam was a communist country. The Republic of South Vietnam was a free country.
Nonexistent. South Vietnam ceased to exist in 1975 When North Vietnam successfully conquered the south. There is only Vietnam now.
