The 856-page book includes more than 70 writings by Party and State leaders, scientists and Nguyen Van Cu's relatives, featuring the revolutionary life and career of the late Party chief.
Nguyen Van Cu was born into an intellectual family on July 9, 1912 in Phu Khe commune, Tu Son ward, Bac Ninh province and began taking part in revolutionary activities at the age of 15. He was elected as the General Secretary of the Indochina Communist Party Central Committee (now the Communist Party of Vietnam) in 1938. An excellent example of a true communist, he was absolutely loyal to the Party and faithful to the people. As a Party leader, he left many valuable lessons about the spirit of criticism and self-criticism in Party building.
