France’s Le Monde newspaper has published a book about President Ho Chi Minh, a figure that won national independence for Vietnam.
This is the 11th book in the 20-volumn historical collection about people who changed the world.
The 104-page book gathered articles written by several authors on the Le Monde newspaper about President Ho Chi Minh’s role in Vietnam’s history.
The book is categorized into 3 historical periods. From 1945-1946, the articles mentioned President Ho Chi Minh reading the Declaration of Independence on Sept 2, 1945 at Ba Dinh square, negotiations with France on a peace treaty for Vietnam, and the bombing in Hai Phong city in 1946.
The chapter from 1946-1954 focused on Vietnam’s Dien Bien Phu victory and the role of President Ho Chi Minh.
The last chapter from 1954-1975 covered socialist construction in northern Vietnam, the struggle against the American army to liberate southern Vietnam for national reunification, and the Paris negotiations and Accord.
Although President Ho Chi Minh died before the national reunification, his thoughts about national independence and unification had been upheld.
The book shows a fact that for Vietnamese and foreign people, President Ho Chi Minh is the symbol of national liberation, independence, and freedom.
