The Vietnam War was one of the most violent conflicts the United States ever participated in. It took place in three countries - Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos - and lasted twenty years of difficult jungle fighting, resulting in the American withdrawal in 1975. While neither side claimed defeat, it is hard to gauge a victory with the loss of over 58,000 American soldiers. Do you consider yourself a Vietnam buff? Do you know the battles, the leaders and their soldiers? Can you navigate the Mekong Delta or fight your way in and out of foxholes?
The twenty-year war had countless battles and skirmishes, but can you identify the event that started the war? Or if that event actually happened? We call the war "The Vietnam War," but what did the Vietnamese call it? You might be surprised. You might be familiar with the fact that Vietnam was one of the first conflicts that saw the regular use of SEAL teams one and two, but do you know what their kill ratio was?
These are only a few of the questions you'll come across in this quiz. Do you think you're up for the challenge, soldier? Most people aren't, but you aren't most people, are you?
