About 6.7 million total death and at least another 3.5 million wounded.
Comment: That is as inflated a figure as I have ever heard. By all accounts there are varying claims of 600,000 to 1.2 million deaths in North Vietnam and their combatants in South Vietnam. The deaths of civilian and military in South Vietnam approximately 450,000. Nowhere and in no war I have ever heard of have the number of dead exceeded the number wounded. In Vietnam, the number of wounded Americans to those killed were about 19 to 1. Just over 58,000 killed, about 1 million wounded. A pure guess, but I think North Vietnam was about a 5 to 1 ratio. So 3 to 6 million wounded. With Americans about 200,000 suffered permanent debility from physical wounds. Another pure guess, but likely 1 to 1.5 million of the wounded North Vietnamese suffered permanent disability. South Vietnamese because they received American Medical care probably had a similar ratio as Americans. But the reduced and hopefully relatively accurate figures I give are a big tragedy for all three factions. For Vietnam it was their war of liberation from foreign rule and occupation. We fought for te wrong reasons. And 35 years later we prove wrong as all of Southeast Asia did not become Communist as predicted. And we have considerable trade with the former enemy.
The Armies of South Vietnam, China, France, and America all had their part to play in the 'Vietnam Conflict'.
Created Green Berets & SEALS, and sent them to Vietnam .
Because of the butter.
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.
The Vietnam Conflict was an event which occurred during the course of the Cold War.
The names of the 14,838 dead US Marines are listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall.
OVER 14,800 US Marines died in the Vietnam War. If you want their names, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall has them recorded there.
In excess of 53,000 dead. A little over 58,000 U.S. Troops dead.
Over 3,000 US Servicemen of Hispanic origin were killed in the war.
About 51000 Americans died in the Vietnam conflict.
Take it you mean their mental state. North Vietnam had a mission (a purpose), and they were going to accomplish their mission...whatever the price. Safety was not first; the mission was!
Explain how the United States became involved in the Vietnam conflict.
one of the conflict is that cracker didn't want to go to the Vietnam
North and South Vietnam were reunited as a Communist state.
