Millions of Vietnamese have died of the consequences of war. Official records are difficult to consult, when they exist, and many among the killed were literally shredded by shelling. This makes it very difficult to agree on exactly what should count as “Viet Nam war victim”; people are still killed by unexploded munitions and mines, particularly cluster munitions. The environmental effects of chemical agents such as Agent Orange defoliant widely used by the Americans and the colossal social problems caused by the devastation of the country after so many deaths have certainly reduced a lot of life survivors.
