After the spring 1975 offensive

General Vo Nguyen Giap wrote about the Spring 1975 Offensive: "The strategic combat in the Spring 1975 marked a new glorious development in the art of people"s war under modern conditions especially in the art of controlling war in its finishing stage, and the art of organizing and guiding the implementation of key, decisive battles to take the resistance to complete victory".

Regarding Vo Nguyen Giap's role in the Viet Nam Revolution Peter McDonald has written: Vo Nguyen Giap was Commander-in-chief for 30 years and was involved in political decision-making at the highest level for nearly 50 years. This commitment is unprecedented. Moreover, it is impossible to compare him to other generals, since the combination between guerilla and regular warfare on such a scale was extraordinary (from Victory in Viet Nam).
