chiến thắng 戰勝

chiến appears in several other Sino-Vietnamese compounds with a military meaning:

  • chiến đấu - fight/combat
  • chiến lược - strategy
  • chiến sĩ - warrior
  • chiến thuật - tactics
  • chiến trận - battle
  • chiến tranh - war
  • chiến trường - battleground

Marked wrong for using "vinh quang" for "glorious". Anyway, do we really need two words for "glorious"? Instead, how about just one word for, say, "soap"? It would be more practical.
