From August 1945 to December 1946, from the victory of the General Insurrection to the start of the resistance to French colonial aggression, Viet Nam went through a crucial period, one that was extremely complex and at times critical.
General Vo Nguyen Giap, one of the main organizers and leaders of the Insurrection, recounted here the events of that historic period. From the whole picture there emerges the vivid and fascinating image of President Ho Chi Minh. These "Unforgettable Days" are indispensable to those who wish to go back to the source of present-day Viet Nam.
