Ho Chi Minh

North Vietnamese nationalist leader (1890-1969) who headed the Vietminh struggle against the French (1946-54) and became president of North Vietnam (1954-65). He supported revolutionary movements in Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam, and his determination to unite the two Vietnams inspired his people to endure years of American bombing of the north.
