The Vietnam War (ironically known in Vietnam as the “American War”) is one of the most noteworthy wars in the 20th century. It is also notable for being one of the longest wars that the United States has ever participated in – with the war lasting for almost 20 years and the United States participating for over 8 of those years.

From television to film and books to music, references and allusions to this costly conflict were everywhere.
