The Entry of the US into the War
  • The entry of US into the war proved to be fatal for both, the Americans as well as the Vietnamese.

  • Both of them faced a terrible loss of life and property.

  • A major role was played by the US media and films, in both supporting as well as criticising the war.

The war grew out of a fear among US policy-planners that the victory of the Ho Chi Minh government would start a domino effect and that communist governments would be established in other countries in the area. They under estimated the power of nationalism to move people to action, inspire them to sacrifice their home and family, live under horrific conditions, and fight for independence. The most technologically advanced country in the world, underestimated the power of a small country to fight.
