The number of troops that the United States sent to the Vietnam War in 1968 exceeded half a million with 540,000 troops.

What was the Vietnam War?

The Vietnam War was a military conflict that began in 1955 and ended in 1975 to reunify Vietnam under a communist government.

This war pitted the communist government of North Vietnam and its allies in South Vietnam, known as the Viet Cong, backed by China and the Soviet Union, against the government of South Vietnam and its main ally, the United States and other allied nations.

This was one of the cruelest wars in history due to the total deaths between 966,000 and 3,010,000 Vietnamese, 58,159 Americans, among others.

One of the reasons for the escalation of this war was the increase in troops to win the contest. In the case of the United States, which began with just 11,000 troops in 1962, by 1968 it had already sent more than half a million troops, close to 540,000.
