Describe the entry of the US into the Vietnam War

Question: Describe the entry of the US into the Vietnam War.

Answer: After 8 long years of fighting Vietnam was successful in defeating the French in 1954. A conference held in Geneva resulted in the division of Vietnam into North and South. The US got worried about the increasing power of the communists so it decided to intervene. Then started the phase of struggle started between 1965 to1972 with the US. It all leads to brutal violence. Thousands of US forces arrived with heavy equipment and tanks. But one thing they did was the underestimation of nationalism o the Vietnamese. All the fights led to huge damage resulting in the exploitation of jungles and dismantled villages. Also, a large number of civilians died in this war. This war created a huge ruckus and proved costly to both Vietnam and the US. The US was apprehensive of an alliance between Japan and Vietnam in 1940. This became a reason for the entry of the US into the Vietnam War.
