“Exhibition: In the Footsteps of the General” includes 110 poems by teacher, poetess and journalist Nguyen Thi My Dung, who had the opportunity to meet and write many poems about the general over more than 20 years.

It also contains various photos by the Vietnam News Agency, journalist Tran Hong and Dung herself on the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954 as well as those capturing moments at exhibitions on the renown general in Hanoi in 2021 and Dien Bien early this year.
