After only three years of war, Russia had 4,950,000 wounded soldiers, and over 1,700,000 casualties. By the war’s end, Russia had weakened their international relations, shrunk their grain, coal and oil industries, and due to the millions of casualties, left women as the primary caretakers and providers for their families. Nearly every aspect of Russian economy and society had completely deteriorated which ultimately led to the Russian Revolution, and it began in March of 1917.

The Vietnam War took place during the cold war era, which lasted many years and could be described as the clashing of two conflicting ideologies between the communist eastern countries and the capitalist western countries. The Americans aimed at stopping the spread of communism in Vietnam, based on the their policy of containment, which was set up to stop the spread of communism to any other country in the world. Many American citizens opposed the sending of their own troops to fight in a war that was not even theirs to lose. Many of the soldiers being sent to Vietnam were members of the youth, which led to increasingly rapid protest action amongst students, as well as the parents of the young men being conscripted. These American troops were being placed to fight in unfamiliar and harsh terrain – as the majority of Vietnam was overgrown with forests and dangerous wildlife - which negatively affected the Americans morale and diminishing their possibility of success in the war.
