Vo Nguyen Giap was a legendary Vietnamese general credited with defeating French forces — and French colonial rule — in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu. He was also a key architect of the 1968 Tet offensive, which convinced many Americans that the Vietnam War could not be won. Gen. Giap died Thursday at the age of 102.
