What happened in the Vietnam War?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What happened in the Vietnam War?       
What happened in the Vietnam War? The Vietnam War began in 1957 when, as in the Korean war, the United States defended its ally, South Vietnam, against attacks from the Communist North. This time, the Communists were supported by the Soviet Union rather than by China. Western military methods were unable to cope with the guerrilla tactics of a peasant army, despite the amounts of firepower that were used.

The Americans eventually gave up their attempts to support the South in 1975. The country fell to the North Vietnamese, together with some of the surrounding countries of South-east Asia.

The Vietnam War showed for the first time how a small country like North Vietnam could take on and eventually defeat the military might of the United States, by using superior tactics.
