Estimates of casualties of the Vietnam War vary widely. Estimates can include both civilian and military deaths in North and South Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. The war lasted from 1955 to 1975 and most of the fighting took place in South Vietnam; accordingly it suffered the most casualties.
Roosevelt said that “France had controlled Vietnam for a hundred years and the people were worse off than they were at the beginning.” Another of the most well-known and chilling phrases that reflect the cruelty of war was “keep killing our men ten by ten and we will kill yours one by one. Finally we are sure that they will get tired before”.
