21 November 1970

Accade Oggi

Vietnam War, 1970, two US teams, the American aviation and the American army, with the aim of freeing about 70 compatriots prisoners of war, arrived at the Vietnamese prison camp of Son Tay. That November 21, 1970, with the operation that later took the name of Ivory Coast, represented a real "flop", a failure, for the American army that only once arrived on the enemy territory and once the rescue operation had begun, realized that the soldiers had already been previously transferred. Looking at the reality of history, this episode is actually just one of several failed recovery operations by the US coalition against the Vietnamese forces coalition.

The Vietnam War, which interested for twenty years (1955-1975) Indochina and the bilateral relations between Vietnam and the United States, began in the unstable context of the cold war for questions due to internal problems and interests of external powers toward the dynamics of power in the re-established Indochinese peninsula. The war ended with the unpredictable victory of the Vietnamese forces, the fall of the South Vietnamese regime and the reunification of the country under the communist leadership of Hanoi.
