(a) A porter on the Ho Chi Minh trail.
The evaluation of Vietnamese war from the point of view of a porter on the Ho Chi Minh trail. The war was disastrous for both the countries. The Vietnamese had to suffer a lot but even then they did not gave up and continued the war against US. Ho Chi Minh trail was an important link to understand the real nature of war between Vietnam and the US. As a porter on that trail porters felt proud because it was the matter of great honor. With a very limited resource the Vietnamese could resist against the US forces. This trail was an immense network of footpaths and roads. It was used to transport men and materials from the north to the south. It had also support bases and hospitals. In some parts supplies were transported in trucks but mostly they, the porters, did these jobs. They used to carry about 25 kilos on their backs or about 70 kilos on their bicycles. The trail was bombed regularly by the US forces in order to disrupt supplies but they were so prompt that they could rebuild the damage very quickly. It was their confidence and devotion to the nation that made them to do so and they could fight such a super power.
(b) A woman soldier.
During US-Vietnam War I Vietnamese woman displayed indomitable courage in US-Vietnam war. They joined the struggle with the men and fought for the country. Their prime duty was not only as a fighter but we also nursed the wounded, constructed underground rooms and tunnels. They did everything with complete devotion for the nation. They were undoubtedly of the view that the operation of the US military forces could not calm down their aspiration and they strongly believed that their victory over US was certain.
