The Paris Peace Accords, officially titled the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Viet Nam, was a peace treaty signed on January 27th, 1973, to establish peace in Vietnam and end the Vietnam War. 

Lasting nearly 5 years, with 201 public sessions, 45 high-level private meetings, 500 press conferences, 1,000 interviews, the peace negotiation process that led to the signing of the Paris Agreement on January 27th 1973 was a one of the longest negotiations in the history of world diplomacy. 

The US and North Vietnam, along with South Vietnam and the Viet Cong, signed an "Agreement on ending the war and restoring peace in Vietnam.". Signed at Paris, France, to take effect Jan 28th at 8 AM Saigon time, thus ending the US combat role in a war that had involved American personnel stationed in Vietnam since defeated French forces departed under terms of the Geneva Accords in 1954. 

This was the longest war in US history, with more than one million combat deaths (US: 47,366). However, within weeks of the departure of American troops, the war between North and South Vietnam resumed. For the Vietnamese, the war didn't end until Apr 30, 1975, when Saigon fell to Communist forces.

304,000 Vietnam veterans were wounded and 75,000 are severely disabled.
