Name some movies about the Vietnam War. How is the war generally shown? What do you think it is like by looking at this picture?


French Occupation of Vietnam

unite North and South Vietnam, but the U.S.

sabotaged the elections and left Ngo Dinh Diem in

charge of South Vietnam.

Domino Theory

The Domino Theory was a term that Dwight Eisenhower used in a speech to describe the consequences if Communism was not contained.


Eisenhower Sends Aid

North Vietnamese:

Viet Cong

China

Soviet Union


JFK

JFK increases the number of advisers, the United States is still not heavily involved in Vietnam and supports a coup (revolt) where Ngo Dinh Diem is killed. Kennedy is assassinated three weeks later.


Lyndon B. Johnson

Johnson’s “Great Society” and the idealism of the early 1960s was quickly turned sour when Johnson became more involved with Vietnam. He continued to send planes for bombing runs and ships.


Gulf of Tonkin Incident

The United States engaged North Vietnam forces twice on August 2nd and 4th, though the incident on August 4th may never have happened.


Gulf of Tonkin Resolution

Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which gave the President power to take all measures necessary to subdue the Viet Cong and protect South Vietnam.


Consequences for the United States

  • Weakened U.S. morale

  • Idealism of the 1960s lost

  • Around 60,000 U.S. casualties
