The Viet Minh (also known as Vietnamese Independence League, or Việt Nam Độc Lập Đồng Minh Hội) was an Vietnamese organization who fought for Vietnam's independence from France.

It was founded by Pac Bo and Ho Chi Minh in 1935 or 1936. It fought against Japan during World War II with help from the United States and the Republic of China.

After World War II ended, the Viet Minh would fight against France during the First Indochina War. The Viet Minh would win the war and Vietnam would be independent, but it would be split into two countries, North Vietnam and South Vietnam.
