MAIN PLAYERS IN THE VIETNAM WAR:

North Vietnam - COMMUNISTS; therefore they were supported by China & Russia

South Vietnam - NON-COMMUNISTS; The USA was backed up by the South East Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) made up of Australia, France, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, the UK and the US. Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines, and Thailand actually supplied aid and troops. In addition Japan and Okinawa supplied US bases and support.

The last answer was incorrect in that the French gave up after 1954, and did not continue fighting in Vietnam.

*The VIETNAMESE HMONG (Mountain People), were also a part of the Vietnam war, but they didn't (and by definition, DON'T) belong to any one country. The Hmong, are a people that are scattered amongst many Asian countries (Laos, China, Vietnam, etc...), so one cannot attribute them as a 'Country' that fought in the Vietnam War.

The Soviet Union (USSR) supplied North Vietnam, and the US fought for South Vietnam.

Vietnam has never had a civil war. The closest you could get would be the Vietnam War, which was fought between the separate although related countries of North and South Vietnam (along with the allies of each side).

North Vietnam fought against South Vietnam, allied with Australia, South Korea, Philippines, Thailand, and the US. France was involved at the beginning.

The Air War was fought over North Vietnam; the Ground War was fought in South Vietnam.

There are none; The Vietnam War was fought against another nation (North Vietnam); just as Korea was fought against North Korea (and Red China); and WWII was fought against the countries of Germany, Japan and Italy. The US is NOT at war with Afghanistan.

North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Also, to name just a few: the USA, China, Russia, South Korea, Australia, France, and England. A great many countries fought in the Vietnam War from 1945 to 1975.

If this person is asking who fought beside them as an ally, the answer is the U.S. But they, later on, gave up about 2 months after the war started.

Several countries have fought for independence from France. Haiti was probably the first. More recently, Algeria and Vietnam.

No. The Vietnam War and WW2 were fought for different reason. The Vietnam War was fought to stop the spread of Communism while WW2 was fought to stop Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.

French No -- the US did not fight agains the French in the Vietnam war. The primary antagonist was North Vietnam, but troops and irregulars from Laos, Cambodia and China were all invovled.

The war was fought in both North & South Korea. This contrasts with Vietnam, in which the ground war was totally fought in South Vietnam; however, the USAF/USN fought the AIR WAR over NORTH Vietnam.

Vietnam was a divided country, formerly the French colony of Indochina, on the southeast coast of mainland Asia. It is west of the Philippines across the South China Sea.The air war was fought over the skies of North Vietnam. The ground war was fought in South Vietnam. The US Navy's riverine wars were fought in the rivers & swamps of South Vietnam.There was some action taken in Cambodia and Laos, typically air raids and a few ground sorties.The Vietnam war was fought mostly in Vietnam. Some fighting occured in the nearby countries of Laos and Cambodia. At that time the country was divided into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The U.S. was trying to help South Vietnam. Vietnam is located on the Asian continent somwhat south of China and bordering on the Pacific Ocean.
