NDO – Two books, entitled ‘Lich Su Quan Su Viet Nam’ (History of Vietnam’s Military) and ‘Lich Su Tu Tuong Quan Su Viet Nam’ (History of Vietnam Military Ideologies), were made public on December 30 in Hanoi.

The former, ‘History of Vietnam’s Military’, has 14 volumes while the later includes five volumes.

True to their titles, the two books review the history of Vietnam’s military as well as the history of Vietnamese military thought from the early establishment of the country to national defence and construction.

The works give readers a comprehensive and indepth look into the country’s military activities. Events highlighted are presented with a full background, account and resulting lessons learned.

The two books were published thanks to joint contributions of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communication and Education, the Vietnam Institute of Military History under the Ministry of Defence, and the National Political Publishing House – Truth.

The books are valuable and trustworthy reference documents on the national history of revolutionary struggle under the clear-sighted leadership of the Vietnamese Communist Party as well as the Vietnamese people’s strength, from wartime to national construction and development.

The publications also contribute to educating Party members, officers and people from all walks of life, particularly younger generations, on the revolutionary tradition of the military.
