Originating from a young activist group, the Brigade was officially established in August 1944 at 46 Bat Dan Street, Hanoi, with 60 founding members.

After the August Revolution, the Brigade and people nationwide exerted every effort to protect the revolutionary government.
They also engaged in the long-term resistance war against the French colonialists, contributing to the capital’s liberation on October 10, 1954, and then continued to participate in the resistance war against the US imperialists for national salvation until the day of complete liberation of the South and reunification of the country.
