Determined to protect the nation

This interesting commemorative work was painted in 1979 to mark the upcoming 50th anniversary in 1980 of the founding of the Vietnamese Communist Party by Ho Chi Minh, and other exiles, who took refuge in Hong Kong in 1930.

The poster was created in the same year that China attacked Vietnam in a brief but bloody and intense border war.

We see members of the three Armed Services at the ready to defend the nation.
