HA NOI (VNS) — Photographer Tran Tuan, a former photo journalist of the Vietnam News Agency, has published a photo album on General Vo Nguyen Giap titled "General Giap in People's Hearts".


The book is a compilation of more than 100 photos taken before, during and after General Giap's funeral, and showcases the Vietnamese reactions to the general's death in October last year and how they paid their respects.

The pictures were taken at various locations, such as General Giap's house at 30 Hoang Dieu Street in Ha Noi, the National Funeral House in Ho Chi Minh city and the general's hometown in the central province of Quang Binh.

Tuan spent 35 years accompanying the general and has captured thousands of images, especially the important moments of the legendary general's life.— VNS
