If your referring to the Vietnam war, the first U.S military advisors arrived in Vietnam in 1950.

Vietnam war of course!

The communists were victorious in Vietnam.

How did the role the American media played in the Vietnam War.

Although US sevicemen's deaths in Vietnam go back into the 1950's; most historians accept 1961 as the starting date for the Vietnam War.

The US had a presence in Vietnam from the late 1950's until evacuated from atop the embassy building, in South Vietnam in 1975.

France. The French Army was occupying Vietnam in the 50's to protect that country's rubber and oil interests in Vietnam.

The US and it's allies were unable to stem the tide of communist men and material from entering South Vietnam, without widening the war with other countries. Unlike the Korean War 1950-1953, in which Korea was a peninsula, and could be isolated, since the US Navy controlled the seas, Vietnam was NOT a peninsula and could not be isolated to prevent the flow of men and material into South Vietnam, where the war was being fought.

Vietnam was called French Indo-China in the 1950's

In the early 1950's this is wrong the first troops to step foot in Vietnam as fighters was in 1954. 1954 is the early 1950's so actually both are right :)

The Korean War (1950-1953) and the Vietnam War (1961-1975) were part of the COLD WAR, against the spread of communism.

US Army helicopters landed in South Vietnam in 1956. They were used in the Korean War in 1950-53.

France. The French Army was occupying Vietnam in the 50's to protect that country's rubber and oil interests in Vietnam.

Because no US President wanted to be the FIRST US President to lose a war.

we didn't lose Vietnam. We simply left when President Nixon went into office. We trained the south Vietnam people to fend for themselves and slowly took troops out, then when the two Vietnam's called a peace treaty for the new year celebration Tet north Vietnam issued several attacks on South Vietnam. So the side we were helping lost but truthfully we did not lose.

North Vietnam won the war.

They intervened in the war. They did not lose, instead, the public was against the conflict so they pulled out. They never surrendered, so they did not lose.

The us entered the Vietnamese war in 1950 they exited in 1975 entered to avoid a communist takeover of south Vietnam

For the US, anything before 1950 & anything after Vietnam (after 1975). The "red scare" and "better dead than red" era was about from 1950 thru 1975. Both of those dates include the Korean & Vietnam Wars.

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.

The Korean War of 1950-1953 or the US Civil War of 1861-1865.

Because we had learned our lesson in the Korean War 1950-1953. We INVADED North Korea and Red China entered the war against us. If we invaded North Vietnam, Communist China may have entered the Vietnam War.

No. World War 2 had 418,500 US Deaths. Vietnam had 58,217 US Deaths. and 155,359 Wounded/MIA (1,947 are MIA)

US involvement in Vietnam started in the early 1950's. We were there as advisors. We officially became part of the battle in 1965 and pulled out in 1975. It is important to understand that President Johnson did NOT have Congressional approval to declare war, therefore we were not officially at war. ALSO when we pulled out - because of not being 'at war' with Vietnam - we did not lose the war. We officially pulled out and chose not to continue fighting.
