The Vietnam War Era encompasses the period during and around the Vietnam War, which lasted 1955 to 1975. The war took place predominantly in Vietnam, but also in Laos and Cambodia, and was officially fought between North and South Vietnam. However, the involvement of other countries, such as the Soviet Union, China, and the United States, have led some to consider it a proxy war. The Vietnam Era also saw the rise of counterculture and political disaffection in the United States.
