During his life he becomes a Vietnamese Communist revolutionary leader, Prime minister (1945 – 1955) and President (1945 -69).

Throughout his life he is an inspiration for those Vietnamese fighting for a united communist Vietnam, By some, he is fondly referred to with great reverence and respect, as Uncle Ho  or The Father.

After the war, the former capital of the Republic of Vietnam is renamed after him, Saigon becomes Ho Chi Minh City.
