Are there any similarities between the American Revolution and Vietnam?

Just a few would be helpful.


Answer by  spragoo (1500)

The only real similarity I would have to say is that both countries were trying to separate themselves from the control of another country. The Americans were trying to separate from the British, and the south Vietnamese were trying to separate from Communism that was in North Korea due to the influence of china.

Both had crucial turning points- Saratoga and Tet. Both Civil Wars. Guerilla style warfare. Both were fighting over government. Outside countries were not supportive of wars. Only 1 of the 2 sides had issued uniforms. Both used guns and gun powder. Both were fought over vast distances with long lines of communication. Both wars triggered animosity among the common people.
