Vietnam was the second "hot" battle of the Cold War (the fight against communism). Korea was the first "hot" battle. Vietnam was fought under the rule of the domino theory, if one country falls to communism, then the next one will fall. We fought in Vietnam to stop the spread of communism.

The war took place in Vietnam because it was a civil war between north and south Vietnam. north Vietnam were communists and south Vietnam were capitalists. Australia's involvement was because they wanted the war on Vietnam soil not on Australian and America and the other countries like new zealand and south Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Spain and Taiwan and ofcourse china
