Until the Nguyễn Dynasty saw the growth of Hà Giang, Vị Xuyên was the largest settlement in the area.[3] Battle of Vi Xuyen is considered more fierce than the Chinese invasion into Vietnam in 1979. This battle was lasted about four years - from 1984 to 1989. China PLA was trying to take over Ha Giang's capital - Vi Xuyen, aiming to push into Vietnam's territory by 5km. But, NVA consisting of 9 divisions were trying to protect every inch of their soil from the China PLA. Many NVA soldiers had bravely fought against the over-powered China PLA - in terms of artillery destructive power and numbers of mans. Until now, many missing in action NVA have not been all recorded. There are about three thousand NVA soldiers unaccounted for.
