336pp/maps. Vo Nguyen Giap is one of the great military commanders of the Twentieth Century. Victorious in battles against, successively, the Japanese, the French and the Americans, Giap became North Vietnam's Minister for Defence and Commander in Chief. He worked with Ho Chi Minh to create the armies and the support for these under equipped forces that would eventually triumph over the might of the West. Japanese occupation lasted from 1941-45, during which time Ho Chi Minh's Revolutionary League for Independent Vietnam became the most powerful force in the country. Despite pressure for independence the victorious Allies (of World War II) restored French control, thus beginning 30 years of war in Vietnam. John Colvin's biography describes the extraordinary single-mindedness with which Giap pursued victory. Clean. N° de réf. du libraire 009451
Synopsis : A portrait of Vietnam's most important military leader, General Giap, discusses his military tactics and campaigns, his role in the Vietnam War, and his impact on the pivotal battles of that war, from the 1940s to the fall of Saigon in 1975.
