FC: 15.05 Final Phase of Vietnam Book

1: Richard Nixon claimed to have a plan to end the war in Vietnam, but, it took him five years to disengage the United States from Vietnam. The most controversial aspect of his strategy was an effort to cut the Ho Chi Minh supply trail by secretly bombing North Vietnamese sanctuaries in Cambodia and invading that country and Laos.

2: On April 30, 1975, a column of 7 North Vietnamese tanks rolled down Saigon's deserted streets and crashed through the gates of South Vietnam's presidential palace. Consequently, North Vietnamese forces were able to advance against little resistance. On April 30, 1975, North Vietnamese soldiers captured Saigon, bringing the Vietnam War to an end.

3: The war's greatest costs and suffering were borne by the Vietnamese people, who may have lost 2 million lives during the conflict. Hundreds of thousands of South Vietnamese were displaced from rural villages, and their families splintered.

4: The Vietnam led Congress to replace the military draft with an all-volunteer force and the country to reduce the voting age to 18. | The Vietnam War severely damaged the U.S. economy. | The war also weakened U.S. military morale and undermined, for a time, the U.S. commitment to internationalism.

5: The war was definitely worth it because if not south Vietnam would still be controlled by north Vietnam and it would probably cause a major conflict with the u.S.
