The Associated Press reported Friday that retired General Vo Nguyen Giap, who is known for his role as commander-in-chief of the Vietnamese army during its war against the U.S. and France, has died. Aside from General Ho Chi Minh, Giap was the person most credited with overseeing the military strategy of the Vietnam People’s Army between 1946 and 1975.
According to a Vietnamese official and another unspecified source, Giap was in a Hanoi hospital when he passed away. He was 102 years old.
