Bảo tàng lịch sử Quốc gia

Vietnam National Museum of History

In 1946, responding to President Ho Chi Minh’s Appeal to the Vietnamese people to take part in United National Resistance, inspired by the cry “We would rather sacrifice all than lose our country and be slaves”, and the strategy of “all the people, in every way, for however long it takes, and in a spirit of self-reliance”, all the peoples of Vietnam committed themselves to the nine year resistance struggle against the French (1946-1954), with simple weapons such as bamboo sticks, tripod anti-tank lunge mines, and through such campaigns as Viet Bac (1947) and Borderline (1950), which ended with the great victory at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in May, 1954.
