HO CHI MINH is dead! The world was stunned by the news, even though he had lived a long, arduous and adventurous life, had performed deeds of heroism and recorded achievements beyond most world figures of this crowded epoch. His life was one of passionate devotion to a cause from which he never deviated. He languished in British and Kuomintang jails, was under sentence of death by the French colonialists and was reported dead several times. A man of great stature, he so expressed his people’s will and passion as to give his small country’s liberation struggle a decisive significance in world history.
