Viet Minh military leader (1911–2013) who served as a principal commander in the First Indochina War and Vietnam War, serving as Ho Chi Minh’s second-in-command. Rare TLS in Vietnamese, two pages, 8 x 11.5, October 4, 1977. Letter to Martin Dzur, minister of defense for the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic. In full (translated): “On the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the Czechoslovak People's Army, on behalf of all officers and soldiers of the Vietnam People's Armed Forces and me, I would like to send Mr. Minister and all officers, soldiers of the Czechoslovak People's Army the warmest congratulations.

Under the leadership of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia, upholding the glorious traditions which is began by the resounding victory Du - Kla, the Czech People's Army continuously achieved great achievements in the building regular and modern military, cooperating with people to firmly safeguard the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, and having the worthy contribution to preserving peace in Europe and worldwide.

As a close companion-in-arm of the Czechoslovak People's Army, we are very pleased with this great success and sincerely wish that the People's Army and people of Czechoslovakia continues to gain more new brilliant wins in implementing the resolutions adopted by the 15th Party Congress of Czechoslovakia, building successfully and firmly defend the socialist to develop Czechoslovakia more beautiful.

On this glorious occasion, we would like to express our sincere gratitude for the support and help in the spirit of proletarian internationalism of Communist Party, the government, the people of Czechoslovak and the Czechoslovak People's Army for the revolutionary cause of the Vietnam in recent years as well as in the social construction stage today.

Good for friendship between the people and armies of two countries Vietnam - Czechoslovakia increasingly consolidate and develop well.” In fine condition, with light edge toning and staple holes to upper left.

Czechoslovakia had fallen under Communist rule in 1948, making them a natural ally of North Vietnam during the conflict of the 1960s and 1970s, with Czechoslovakia becoming a key source of military materials and weapons for the Vietcong. Particularly important were their exports of the plastic explosive Semtex, which was developed by a Czech firm for the North Vietnamese Army in 1964. The countries continued to maintain close relations in postwar years, with economic ties that were mutually beneficial—even today there is a large Vietnamese population in the Czech Republic due to labor exchange programs of this era. Excellent foreign relations content from the Communist era. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
