Read full description of the books How We Won the War:While the book is steeped in ideological rhetoric, there are valid military concepts that shine thru. Giap clearly sees the link between policy and strategy which leds to an operational approach. He describes operations in terms of decisive (which supports the decisive point/CoG as part of the operational approach) and supporting or shaping operations. His also describes principles of war: tempo, mobility, surprise, space, and time. While none of this is explicit, those who are familiar with a wider scope of military writings will recongnize this. It also contridicts the idea that there are seperate eastern and western approaches to warfare. The logic of war remains quite similiar, at least, according to Giap.

He first grew to prominence during World War II, where he served as the military leader of the Viet Minh resistance against the Japanese occupation of Vietnam.

Giap was also a journalist, an interior minister in President Hồ Chí Minh's Việt Minh government, the military commander of the Viet Minh, the commander of the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN), and defense minister. He also served as a member of the Politburo of the Vietnam Workers' Party, which in 1976 became the Communist Party of Vietnam.
