President Ho then led the Vietnamese people to triumph over French colonists and US imperialists.

National reunification was the burning desire of President Ho Chi Minh and the Vietnamese people, Manduro wrote, adding that thanks to President Ho Chi Minh’s military doctrine of the all-people war, the Vietnamese people struggled against the most modern weapons and military tactics of the US army.
