General Vo Nguyen Giap of the Indochinese People‘s Revolutionary Army poses for a picture, 1980. Giap got his start as a guerrilla by leading fellow students in ambushes of German supply convoys through the southern Annam region. His activities caught the attention of the People’s Liberation Command in Saigon, and they decided to give him a chance, entrusting him with command of a company sized unit of Cambodian troops, part of the Khmer Issarak movement. Giap‘s troops would grow exponentially as he lead the defense of the city of Stung Treng against the German colonizers, successfully holding off their offensive.
Giap would also mastermind the Tet Offensive, a daring uprising in the northern Tonkin region which seized Hanoi and lead to the encirclement and destruction of three German divisions. Many historians believe that the Tet Offensive is what saved the Indochinese Union; German commanders like the famous Erwin Rommel had the People’s Liberation Force hard pressed to hold its ground across much of Annam, and German troops had overrun the Mekong Delta, seizing Can Tho. To many observers, including those of the Internationale, it looked like Germany was winning. Tet threw that all off balance; Hanoi fell, German units were encircled and wiped out across Laos and central Annam, and the situation, frankly, fell apart. In the Delta General Rommel launched a last ditch offensive aimed at Saigon, but it ground to a halt in the city‘s suburbs, with the Saigon Workers, Teachers and Cadets Brigades playing a particularly vital role in holding the Germans off....and suffering casualties which reflected that. In the end, though, the sacrifices of the revolutionaries across Indochina were not in vain— on May 17, 1937 the Germans officially agreed to pull out of Indochina. The Internationale trumpeted the news of colonialism having suffered a “devastating blow” across the globe.
But that was not to say that the newborn Indochinese state was out of the woods. Across the Mekong, Siam glowers at the news of a revolutionary neighbor. Absolutists triumphed in the country’s brief, brutal civil war, which raged on at the same time as the Indochinese Revolution, and Japan hovers out of sight like a vulture eager to plunder the rubber and tungsten resources the new syndicalist state has. With dangerous neighbors Indochina’s struggles may be only just beginning. But for now, it is time to enjoy newfound freedom.

Either the Ostasian Marine is a freaking superhuman or they messed up part of the artwork, because it looks like he’s holding a MG-34 with a couple of fingers.
