These two wars stem from the same background which explains why people may be confused with the difference between the two. Vietnam war is often said to be caused by the environment left behind by the Cold war. The Cold War is considered to be a less bloody war because there weren’t a lot of casualties. It was rare that civilians became affected by the war.

The Vietnam War delineates the fight between communism and capitalism, and the battle of the Cold War. The Vietnam War was a smaller version of the Cold War throughout that time, and it was fought within the timeframe of the Cold War. The dates of the Cold War were 1947-1991, and Vietnam was 1955-1975. These wars were driven by the eagerness to spread communism versus the desire to stop it, and the impact of these wars was ruinous. The combined casualties, including civilians and service people, is around six million people.

The battle was a triumph for communism and a disappointment to the United States in the Cold War because communism spread further into South Asia. The Cold War and the Vietnam War occurred in synergy, and they both have similar backgrounds. The Vietnam War is a product of the tense climate caused by the Cold War.
