North Viet defeated South Viet.
North Vietnamese won the Vietnam War, and it is the year 1975, not 1990, that they militarily defeat South Vietnam.
China and the Soviet Union.
America did not lose the Vietnam police action. In 1975 the South Vietnamese lost their civil war with North Vietnam two years after the American withdrawal. The North violated their Peace Treaty an invaded South Vietnam and were able to defeat the South Vietnamese militarily.
1. The US didn't defeat N. Vietnam. 2. The "ONLY" weapon feared by North Vietnam (and the NVA in South Vietnam) was the B-52 Stratofortress heavy bomber (Strategic Air Command).
The defeat of the south vietnamese forces was happened in the 30th of April , 1975 .
Richard Nixon.Let's be honest here. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War ended under Nixon (actually, due to the Congressional pressure, specifically the Case-Church Amendment of 1973), but he hardly stopped the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War ended in 1975 with the final defeat of the South Vietnamese by the North Vietnamese Army forces.
The first Indo-China war between Vietnamese troops and French forces started in 1946 and ended in 1954 with Vietnamese victory at Dien BiÃªn Phu. US involvement in Vietnam started in 1955.
By the end of Lyndon Johnson's administration, the Vietnam War was stalemated and unresolved. Half a million American soldiers were stationed in Vietnam but they were unable to prevent North Vietnamese infiltration of South Vietnam while the North Vietnamese army was unable to inflict any serious defeat on the American Army.
North Vietnam...not Vietnam. Vietnam didn't exist until 1975.
President Nixon's policy of Vietnamization was designed to shift the burden of Vietnam War onto the South Vietnamese army so the United States army could withdraw from the country. Nixon hoped that the South Vietnamese army would be able to defeat North Vietnam if it continued to receive supplies from the United States. The policy failed. Once the United States army withdrew, the South Vietnamese army was defeated by the North Vietnamese army.
To defeat the South Vietnamese government.
They withdrew from South Vietnam in defeat.
Primarily that the Vietnam War was fought by WWII commanders (WWII veterans); their last war. In WWII, Japan took over a lot of Asian countries that were colonized by European counties. Vietnam was colonized by France. After the war, the French came back and they thought that it would be like it was before the war. The Vietnamese people realized that the French were vulnerable, having been beaten by the Japanese. If the Japanese could defeat the French in Vietnam, then so could the Vietnamese people.
In 1950, long before the Vietnam war began, Truman gave aid to the French in their fight against the Vietminh. President Eisenhower upped the ante after the French defeat at Dien Binh Phu by providing military advisors to help train the South Vietnamese Army.
Ho Chi Minh was the president of Vietnam from 1945 until 1955, when Vietnam was divided into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh, known by the North Vietnamese people as "Uncle Ho" remained as president of North Vietnam until his death in 1969 while the U.S. "war in Vietnam" continued. He didn't live long enough to see his life-long dream come true with the defeat of South Vietnam and a unified country in 1975.
What defeat are you talking about? It's not over yet.
the U.S. did not defeat the Viet Cong.
North Vietnam did not win the Vietnam War. To win a war, the losing side must surrender. The limited war the US was fighting against North Vietnam and South Vietnam guerrilla fighters proved to be costly and one that disrupted the unity of the US at home. The newly elected President Nixon promised to end US involvement in the conflict and after several years did so. A "cease fire" was finally negotiated in Paris.
Quite apart from throwing suspicion upon the competence of U.S. and South Vietnamese leaders to assess North Vietnamese war-making capacity, the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War had this significant effect: it convinced numerous leaders and observers in the West that the Vietnam War was far from over. With war protests already growing in the United States yet now increasing, the effect of the Tet Offensive, despite that it was a military defeat, amounted to a diplomatic-political "win" for North Vietnam.
America fought against North Vietnam, in an unsuccessful attempt to defeat its invasion and conquest of South Vietnam.
The Vietnam war, for sure
United States' troops became directly involoved in a war in Vietnam, and then military defeat led France to pull out of it's former colony of Vietnam.
President Johnson believed that the US could defeat north Vietnam because the US had won WWII with firepower, and the US had the most firepower on earth during the Vietnam War.
South Vietnam was not able to gain independence from North Vietnam. North Vietnam took over the country during the Vietnam War and the United States Army left in defeat.
North Vietnam and South Vietnam. South Vietnam was a democratic republic and North Vietnam had a socialist government headed by a communist regime. North Vietnam was trying to defeat the democracy of South Vietnam and unify the country.
