Throughout history, there have been many events where it had a significant impact on the nation, society, or an individual. During the early 1900s, when World War I occurred, in the United States the theme of work of literatures changed due to the impact of the event. Specifically, World War 1 had its mark on the works of Ernest Hemingway. World War I was a prominent event that had a major effect on American literature itself and authors. Due to different chain of events, such as alliances within foreign countries and the death of Franz Ferdinand, it sparked the global war between the allies, including Britain, France, and Russia, and the central powers including Germany and Austria- Hungary.
As the war continued, the military actions of the Viet Cong decreased as the role and engagement of the NVA grew. U.S. and South Vietnamese forces relied on air superiority and overwhelming firepower to conduct search and destroy operations, involving ground forces, artillery, and airstrikes. In the course of the war, the U.S. conducted a large-scale strategic all-out-war and attack against North Vietnam. The North Vietnamese government and the Viet Cong were fighting to reunite Vietnam. They viewed the conflict as a colonial war and a continuation of the First Indochina War against forces from France and later on the United States.
Thousands of people lost their homes and many people were made orphan and widows. War brings hatred and spreads falsehood. The Vietnam War was a long, costly armed conflict that pitted the communist regime of North Vietnam also known as “Viet Cong” against South Vietnam and its ally The United States. During this period more than 3 million people including 58,000 Americans and more than 1.5 million Vietnamese civilians were killed in the Vietnam war. After some time, the anti-war protest began to increase which ultimately ended with the withdrawal of U.S. forces in 1973.
These attacks took place all over the North Atlantic and Mediterranean oceans. The attacks were the last straw for Woodrow Wilson. As a result of these incidents, he officially declared war on Germany in April 1917. Directly following this announcement, the United States had to do a lot of preparation to get ready for a battle of this magnitude. This war cost the U.S, as well as many other countries, a lot of lives and millions of dollars.
Contextualization and introduction The Vietnam War served as a major turning point of the Cold War, during which the American public split in its support of the conflict. As a proxy in the superpower conflict between the United States (US) and the Soviet Union (USSR), the US entered to support the South Vietnamese who were at war against the communist North. To support the South and its Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), the United States sent military advisory, conducted airstrikes, and committed ground forces with the hope of curbing the growth of communist ideology in the Asian sphere of influence through a communist defeat. However, the American military ultimately did not apply full force against the Northern combatants under the People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN/NVA) and Viet Cong (VC). Despite investing considerable quantities of human and material resources to support the South’s fight over control of Vietnam, the focus often diverted to concurrent threats such as West Germany.
The Vietnam war started on 1 November 1955 and lasted until 30 April 1975. The war was fought between the North Vietnamese Communist government and the South Vietnamese Communist rebels known as the Viet Cong against the non-Communist South Vietnamese government and their ally U.S.A. The war destroyed the life of both, the North and South Vietnamese along with the other nations that took part in it. More than 1 million people were killed, including civilians and over 3 million injured. Thousand were wives were left widows and hundreds of kids orphans.
How did Ho Chi Minh's army defeat the USA in the Vietnam war? In March 1965, US President Lyndon Baines Johnson gave order to send 3,500 marines to South Vietnam and consequently started America's involvement in the Vietnam war. In short, the main reason that Johnson, Nixon and Kennedy continued to involve the USA in the Vietnam war, was to stop the spread of communism. Also, since the USSR and China had also become communist states, 'losing' more countries to communism would cause America to forfeit its powerful position as 'the leader of the free world'. America assumed it would be easy for them to win the war against North Vietnam, they were a huge military machine against a peasant army, yet this huge underestimating of the Viet Cong
Vietnam used to be ruled by France but later declared independence after World War II under Ho Chi Minh. During the Geneva Accords of 1954, Vietnam was divided into the communist North and anti-communist South (Spector). The Vietnam War was the longest war in the United States history because it lasted for nearly twenty years. It caused the death of millions of Vietnamese and Americans. The Vietnam War is also known as the Second Indochina War.
Emperor Bao saw this as an attack and then sought other ways to try and regain control of that region. The Vietnam war officially began in 1954. After the battle at Dien Bien Phu, there was a treaty signed, “ the 17th parallel’, that assigned the south to Bao and the north to Ho. in 1963 Diem and his brother were killed. Lynson saw this vulnerability and decided to increase their involvement.
