The Vietnam War Memorial was constructed in 1993 to commemorate those who died in the Second Indochina War which lasted from 1955 to 1975. The Second Indochina, which had the Viet Cong, North Vietnamese Army and assorted allies on one side, and the South Vietnamese Army and American Armed forces, plus allies, on the other, resulted in between 1 and 4 million Vietnamese people dying as a direct consequence of the fighting. Estimates of the number of Vietnamese causalities vary dramatically. To learn more about the Second Indochina War consider also visiting the Vietnam Military History Museum, which is a 600 metre walk to the south of the Vietnam War Memorial. The Vietnam Military History Museum provides a Vietnamese perspective on this terrible 20 year long conflict.
