The only foreigner who joined all the way from the founding of the Chinese Red Army in 1927 to the victory of China's War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression in 1945, it is said that ๐—ก๐—ด๐˜‚๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐—ป or better known in China as ๆดชๆฐด Hong Shui, meaning โ€˜floodโ€™, took this Chinese name to picture himself as a โ€˜torrent of waterโ€™, scoffing at the negative connotation the Chinese nationalists attached to the word to label communists.


Nguyen Son was born in Hanoi in 1908 and at five years old he began to learn French at a Catholic school. When Son was fourteen years old he passed the Hanoi Teachers College. After the call by Nguyen Ai Quoc (better known as later President Ho Chi Minh from 1945-1969) for young people in Vietnam, better known as Ho Chi Minh, to study and join the long march in China, Son arrived in Guangzhou in 1925 to study at the Whampoa, China's first modern military academy and joined the Communist Party of China (CPC) the next year in 1926.





In the next almost two decades, he became known as a highly competent military leader in the battles and made significant contributions to the publicity of the Red Army and an inspiration for Red Army soldiers. Besides being a dynamic military leader, Son was editor-in-chief for 2 newspapers of the Red Army and organized gatherings to attract the people to the Communist Party. In 1938 he married Chen Jiange, a communist comrade and they got 2 children.






In 1945, upon the call of Ho Chi Minh, he returned to Vietnam to fight against the French colonialists. During these years he received news that his family in China died in the Civil War. Ho Chi Minh requested him to marry again in Vietnam with a daughter of famous Vietnamese scholar Le Du. Son returned to China in 1950 only to find out that his โ€˜Chineseโ€™ family was still alive. These were inconsolable years though he was conferred the rank of Major General in the Chinese Peopleโ€™s Liberation Army by Chairman Mao Zedong in 1955, the same rank as he had received in the Vietnamese Peopleโ€™s Army as well.




One year after his high position in the Chinese government, lung cancer was diagnosed and he returned to Hanoi. Nguyen Son died in October 1956. โ€œThe general of two countriesโ€ is dearly remembered for his heroism both in China and Vietnam.
