The monument's construction began in June 1919. A contest was held in the spring to chose a design for the monument and it was won by Charles and Anna Bownton, who were a husband and wife team of designers. Unlike other military monuments in Europe, Brunant's was fairly small and simple.

The monument was finished November of that same year and was unveiled by Prince Hendrik on 11 November for the first anniversary of the war armistice.
