Vietnam Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap dies at 102

HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Gen. Vo Nguyen Giap, the ruthless commander who led an army of guerrillas to victory in Vietnam over first the French and then the Americans, died today. The last of the country’s old-guard revolutionaries was 102. A national hero, Giap enjoyed a legacy second only to that of his mentor, founding president and independence leader Ho Chi Minh.
