InfoVõ Nguyên Giáp (born 25 August 1911)[1] is a retired General of the Quân Đội Nhân Dân Việt Nam ("Vietnam People’s Army") and a politician. Giáp was a principal commander in two wars: the First Indochina War (1946–1954) and the Vietnam War (1960–1975). He participated in the following historically significant battles: Lạng Sơn (1950); Hòa Bình (1951–1952); Điện Biên Phủ (1954); the Tết Offensive (1968); the Easter Offensive (1972); and the final Hồ Chí Minh Campaign (1975).

Giáp was also a journalist, an interior minister in President Hồ Chí Minh’s Việt Minh government, the military commander of the Việt Minh, the commander of the Vietnam People’s Army (PAVN), and defense minister. He also served as a member of the Politburo of the Đảng lao động Việt Nam ("Vietnam Workers' Party"), which in 1976 became the Đảng cộng sản Việt Nam ("Vietnam Communist Party").

He was the most prominent military commander, beside Ho Chi Minh, during the war and was responsible for major operations and leadership until the war ended.
