American war, Never to be repeated

The American war, known to the world outside as Vietnam war is well displayed at Saigon’s War remnant museum. Although Americans are arguing that exhibits are one-sided, the museum does the job really well to show the world the horrors of war.

If you happen to be in Saigon, make this one a must list.
