Do you guys think Ho Chi Minh was an effective military leader? How good of a leader was this man? Him and the NVA were able to get rid of the French and then America.

Ho Chi Min was the #1 dilema that America faced. He was a national hero after his victory over the French. He was one of the most effective leaders at using terrain to his advantage in modern history. Not sure how much of it was his ideas and how much was the invention of subordinates.

Ho Chi Minh was a revolutionary, not a military leader. The NVA-strategy was created by the brilliant general Vo Nguyen Giap. He was the guy behind the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu and planning the Tet-offensive.

Here's some info on Dien Bien Phu.

Military leader no. Political leader yes.

Giap however was outstanding as a military leader.
