North Vietnam and the United States. South Vietnam wasn't the main combatant, because they did NOT conduct the Air War over North Vietnam. The Vietnam War had three categories: US Navy-Riverine War; US Air Force-Air War; US Army/US Marines-Land War.
The total land area of Vietnam is 310,070 km2.
The US Army has jurisdiction over all land wars.
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.
Vietnam is a communist nation; the US is not.
The US never invaded Vietnam.
Because the Vietnam war was fought between Vietnam and the US
The US has never fought with a nation called "Vietnam."
vietnam covers 127,246 sq mi; 329,566 sq km of land
I don't believe the US did invade Vietnam. The US was an invited participant and adviser in an ongoing conflict between North Vietnam and South Vietnam.
Yes, the US was an ally and protector of the Republic of Vietnam, commonly referred to as South Vietnam. The US was however not an ally of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, commonly referred to as North Vietnam.
No the US was not communist in the Vietnam War. The US fought with South Vietnam against the communist north. and we lost
South Vietnam was considered an ally of the US.
There is a good relationship today; US tourists go to Vietnam, and Vietnam markets it's trade goods to the US.
US Military personnel were in Vietnam from 1955 thru 1975.
1. Air War over North Vietnam (MIGS vs US JETS) 2. Land/Ground War in South Vietnam (Patton tanks and ACAVs) 3. Riverine War in South Vietnam. (Swift Boats & Monitors)
We were at war with Vietnam because they disagreed with us about something.
The French were fighting in Vietnam in 1950 not the US.
The US was concerned about the development of Communism in Vietnam
Nguyen Quoc Cuong is the Ambassador to the US for Vietnam.
The fear of being invaded was not a justification for the increase in US involvement in Vietnam. The US withdrew from Vietnam in 1975.
