War, a state between societies, nations, and modern countries, which has been rooted in human history since the antique. It is aggression among armed and guerrilla forces of multiple sides in an armed conflict which rarely possess symmetrical equipment, manpower or level of training. Although asymmetric warfare is a somewhat fresh expression, it is important to understand that not a single war or armed conflict has even been completely symmetric. Asymmetry showed itself in manpower, equipment, logistics, strategies or tactics used. The Second Indochina War, which turned into a Vietnam War between United States of America and North Vietnam 1960s, is an interesting and eye-opening example which shows us that even a mechanically superior party in a conflict can lose to a much weaker opponent, even if the first operates with a far superior firepower than the latter.
My bachelor’s thesis is a research of asymmetry of the Vietnam War. To achieve that it was crucial for me to select three indicators to study. Further, I researched crucial points at which the U. S. began to lose the war and which properties in the asymmetry of the war influenced the chronology of the events that occurred at the time of the war.
