  • 1 March General offensive monuments is one complex with Vredeburg Fort (in front of the post office a large DIY). The monument is aimed at commemorating the Indonesia army attacks against the Netherlands on March 1, 1949 where attacks conducted at 06.00 using guerrilla strategy to attack outposts Netherlands Netherlands soldiers who make trouble against the TNI. The attack was carried out to prove to the world that Indonesia still has the power to fight against the Netherlands. The time of the attack Indonesia national army led by Lieutenant Colonel Suharto, Commander of the 10th Brigade of the III Wehrkreise region, which of course after approval from Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX as the head of the Yogyakarta special region. Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono IX considers that time Indonesia should prove to the outside world that even though the leader of the country of Indonesia when it was captured by the Netherlands, does not mean the Government of Indonesia has paralyzed the Government, but rather Indonesia is still there and the TNI still strong so that it can support the struggle of the RI in a UN Security Council session held in March 1949. Thus there are a few things you want to accomplish with this attack, i.e., in addition to military purposes, there is also a political objective and purpose of the psychological. In the battle of Yogyakarta when it successfully occupied by the INDONESIAN ARMY for 6 hours until 12.00, in accordance with what had been planned previously. With a successful attack (1 March General offensive) then the TNI increasing morale and was able to break the Netherlands conducted propaganda stating that the RI and the TNI has been paralyzed. The current Monument 1 March General offensive is one of the landmarks and cultural heritage of Yogyakarta as a building reminiscent of the history of the struggle of the nation of Indonesia against the invaders in the past. At certain times of the day especially on large independence day or national heroes ' day, the monument is often used as an event to celebrate the big day.
