communism which America feard would spread to them
North Vietnam started the war against South Vietnam; the US went to the aid of the South.
For the US Civil War, the South started the war. For the Vietnam War, the North started the war. Plaese Give More Facts.Thats not the answer to what started the war(!)
There was no Fort Sumter for the Vietnam War; the war started like a cancer...it grew.
The Vietnam War Started Cause south Vietnam liked Cheese and was taking all of it and North Vietnam didnt get any. the year it stared was 1955
Vietnam is a country that is divided was in two, North and South. North and South Vietnam was in war with each other. I forgot what the the war was about. I believe is was slavery. When the war started South Vietnam ask the US to help them and so they did. I believe the war lasted 12 years before South Vietnam stopped the war by quiting. Colin, 12 years old
North Vietnam defeated the South (or the North conquered the South).
There no longer is a North Vietnam, North Vietnam and South Vietnam were joined together after the Vietnam War.
North Vietnam defeated South Vietnam; the North won the war.
Air war over North Vietnam. Ground war in South Vietnam; Riverine war in South Vietnam.
Which Vietnam? North or South?
None. North Vietnam's leadership started it when they began "infiltrating" their forces into South Vietnam in 1955. North American (US) leadership simply responded to it.
Air war-North Vietnam Ground war-South Vietnam
?........the Vietnam war was a war between north and south Vietnam and America. America was trying to defend south Vietnam from the north invading and controling their territory. so America was on the side with south Vietnam
Then in North and South Vietnam.
The North invaded the South and defeated them (conquered them).
Communist North Vietnam wanted to unite with NON-Communist South Vietnam.
The capitol for South Vietnam was Saigon, and the capital of North Vietnam was Hanoi.
Ground war was in South Vietnam (official name was the RVN=Republic of South Vietnam). Air war was in the skies over North Vietnam.
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.
There was no Vietnam during the Viet War. That's what 50% of the war was about (the other 50% was communism). There were TWO countries, a North Vietnam and a South Vietnam. The North conquered the South in 1975. The North was persistent.
North Vietnam was a communist country. The Republic of South Vietnam was a free country.
Well i would say that before the war they were both together but when the communist came in the area the north and the south Vietnam became two. the south was anti-communist and north Vietnam was communist. then there were the war which the North (vietcong) won. A few years after the Vietnam war, the north and the south Vietnam became one and is now today basically calledVIETNAM.
South Vietnam's surrender to North Vietnam is what ended the Vietnam War. The North Vietnamese had the goal of Vietnamese Unification and the surrender of South Vietnam in 1975 allowed them to achieve that objective.
Well North Vietnam was at war against South Vietnam so I don't know what you are getting at...
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.
