Ho Chi Minh and His-tory

There are a number of interesting documentary video about Ho chi Minh and his legacy. Here are two excellent video that are currently on the Web. They provide opposite views of who HCM really was. Ultimately, the often debate by his admirer and foes alike is around the question "Was he a nationalist who tried his best under difficult circumstances or basically an instrument of Comintern and their goal of spreading communist ideology."

The latter documentary is made by a group of activists from the Viet diaspora who wanted to have the name Ho Chi Minh City reverts back to its original name of Saigon.
