The largest ever project of its kind themed “A century of patriotic literature, Ho Chi Minh City revolutionary” features typical literary works of the 20th century in the Southern region.

The editorial board spent five years to collect and choose dozens of thousands of literary works in different types, such as fiction, long story, short story, reports, poetry, screenplay, theory and criticism and others for the project.

The compositions honor patriotism, humanity, the heroism and sacrifices of the soldiers in the field of literature as well as affirming the party leadership, revolutionary heroism and great power of Vietnamese people.

Head of the department of Propaganda and trainning of the HCMC Party Committee Than Thi Thu asked departments, organizations and schools to promote and present the book project to the public, especially young people.
