With his father's encouragement he leaves his home for the West to discover its weakness. Ho ends up in Paris during WWI and makes contacts with the Communists. He manages to appear at the Versailles Conference after the War to appeal for his countries independence but he is thrown out of the meeting. He goes to Moscow arriving to take part in Lenin's funeral. With Michael Borodin he heads to China to help Chiang Kai Chek free itself of the foreign occupiers. However, Chiang turns on the Communists and attacks them. Running for his life Ho ends up in British, Hong Kong where he is hidden from the Kuomintang Chinese government of Chiang. With WWII Ho is in Vietnam leading the revolt against the French and then the Japanese. The revolutionary forces, the Viet Minh, need supplies and Ho goes to visit General Stillwell in Kuming. In an attempt to get Chiang Kai Chek to release supplies to the Viet Minh, Ho goes to meet the Generalissimo in Chungking. However, he is arrested and languishes for a year in a Chinese prison. With his release he returns to Vietnam and carries on the revolt. With the Wars end Hanoi and Saigon are in Viet Minh's hands and Ho begins to negotiate a peace with the French. The problem is that the French, with American support, turn their back on the settlement Ho negotiated and send in French troops. The United States gives all out support to the French but it leads to their defeat and they pull out of Vietnam in 1954. The U.S. pushed for a divided country and ignored the 1956 election calling for united country. With the influence of the China Lobby and Cardinal Spellman Deim is made President of South Vietnam. Ho and his men fight on and with their victory near at hand President Johnson uses the United States Navy to pull a phony stunt to bring in American ground troops. In the middle of the fighting Ho dies but he knew victory was at hand. At the end of his life he was the same man as he was at the beginning. He was true to human virtues and his country.
