Can anyone give me some give me some key points that i should know about WW2 and Vietnam for my exam?
The main difference is that the U.S was on the winning side in WW2.
WW2 was a large party in Australia, which went on for three days in February 1678 without anything worth mentioning happening. Vietnam is some sort of food that is almost like plum pudding, but not quite.
Why do you have an exam about WW2 and Vietnam? They're not even that close in comparison. WW2 was a war that involved the whole world and the Nazis (Germany) were the enemy of the world along with Japan and Italy. The Germans captured most of europe and africa before they were defeated when the US helped Britain and Russia turn the tide on them.
Whereas Vietnam was just the US trying to stop communism from spreading in Vietnam and it was a huge failure.
We were actually winning Vietnam quite handily, but the politicians kept on interfering too much in basic day to day operations instead of letting the trained military men conduct the war.
The justification for the war was still pretty poor though, don't get me wrong.
