Ho Chi Minh held a number of titles at various times in the Vietnam War.  However, he had really only one role.  He was the leader of North Vietnam.

Ho Chi Minh was the leader of the Vietminh in their fight against the French.  After the Vietminh defeated the French, Ho became the leader of North Vietnam.  He was officially the President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.  He was also the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Vietnam.  What this meant is that he was the undisputed political leader of the country.  Ho did not serve as a military leader during the Vietnam War, but he was the leader of North Vietnam up until he died in 1969.
