Perhaps taking courage from Korea, it attempted to do what the French could not in Vietnam. The French could not allocate their sovereignty in Vietnam. The US took a close interest in Vietnam after 1963; however it could not exercise power over it. Nevertheless, in the years between 1965 and 1973 the USA participated in a hot war in Vietnam. It was costly for the USA to assume this policing role. 58.220 people died and 153.303 others injured due to war. It was a 140 billion dollar expense...
