Why in the heck would a lesser armed force fight a conventional war against a stronger enemy army? Giap and his guerrilla war tactics in Vietnam were more successful than the USA's conventional mode.
Gen. Westmoreland's strategy of creating small defensive bases out in the jungle and inviting the Vietcong to attack them didn't work either. In the end, Saigon became Ho Chi Min City. A big loss for the mighty American conventional fighting armed forces.
