Best Answer

No, the Afghanistan is officially the longest war in American history. It began October 7, 2001 and has not ended yet. Before that, the Vietnam War was the longest war in American history. It lasted 103 months.

World War I lasted 4 years and about three months (28 July 1914 - 11 November 1918).

Others claim the Korean War is the longest because it never officially ended, we only signed a cease fire with them.

What is the longest war in American history?

The Afghanistan is officially the longest war in American history. It began October 7, 2001 has not ended yet. Before that, the Vietnam war was the longest war in American history. It lasted 103 months. Others claim the Korean War is the longest because it never officially ended, we only signed a cease fire with them. Second Opinion (different User): The Korean war technically has not ended, making it the longest war, by far, in American History. It "ended" with an armistice, which is really just a truce. A truce means that all hostilities are stopped, but the war is not over. Afghanistan is the longest war if you only count months of active conflict. Technically the Korean war is ongoing though, making it the longest war in our history.
