Operation Silver Bayonet - Vietnam War 1965 - BATTLE SET

The political-military escalation in the 1960s in South-East Asia has generated one of the longest and most complex conflicts in recent history. The United States committed itself alongside the South Vietnamese government against the regular troops of North Vietnam flanked by the Vietcong guerrillas of the National Liberation Front. The land clashes began in 1965 and ended only ten years later with the surrender of Saigon and the abandonment of American soldiers of the last garrison. The long years of war, started with an air bombing campaign on North Vietnam, saw clashes in difficult environments with vegetation that favored guerrilla warfare with the involvement of rural villages and the civilian population.
