General Giap devoted all of his life to Vietnam, and his passing should inspire patriotism in younger generations, according to Martin Hacthoun, a journalist of the Prensa Latina News Agency.

Hacthoun, who is now Prensa Latina correspondent based in Argentina said his meetings with the General during his working time in Vietnam between 2006 and 2007 gave him an insight into a modest man and his genius military mind.

The writer remembers the General stating that unity is the key for all nations in the world who want victory . Hacthoun added that the life of the revolutionary figurehead has proved inspirational to the nations of Latin America.

One month ago, a publication of General Giap’s book ‘People’s War, People’s Army’, considered as a key text of military theory, was published by Argentinean bookshop chain Cienflores.-VNA
