The Indonesian National Revolution, also known as the Indonesian War of Independence, was a four-year-long conflict that lasted from 1945 to 1949. It was fought between the Indonesian nationalists, who sought to establish a sovereign and independent Indonesia, and the Dutch colonial government, which had controlled the archipelago for over three centuries.

The revolution was sparked by Indonesia's declaration of independence on August 17, 1945, just days after the end of World War II. The Dutch government refused to recognize Indonesia's independence and sent troops to the country to reclaim their former colony.

The revolution was marked by intense fighting, guerrilla warfare, and political maneuvering. The Indonesian nationalists, led by figures such as Sukarno and Hatta, used a range of tactics, including diplomacy, propaganda, and military action, to gain international support and strengthen their position against the Dutch.

The revolution ended in 1949 when the Dutch finally recognized Indonesian independence after a period of negotiation and mediation. The conflict had claimed the lives of tens of thousands of people and left deep scars on the Indonesian psyche.
