Best choice ever it even has the word monument in it. I was thinking about it but int the end I didn’t. Reply Japan is an amazing country as are your photos. Your photos do it justice. Reply What is the victory for? Who won what? Reply Even I’m Thai, I didn’t know the history of this moment before until you asked me and I searched for its information on Wikipedia. Thanks for asking. Quoted from Wikipedia: “The monument was erected in June 1941 to commemorate the Thai victory in the Franco-Thai War, a brief conflict waged against the French colonial authorities in Indo-China, which resulted in Thailand annexing some territories in western Cambodia and northern and southern Laos.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victory_Monument_(Thailand) Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
