It was the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu that lead directly to America’s involvement in vietnam. Like Midway and Stalingrad, the Battle for Dien Bien Phu ranks as one of the most decisive and seminal military battles of the Twentieth Century. It is a fascinating tale of arrogance and ingenuity, of false pride and astonishing heroism, of backroom political bargaining and gross military bungling. The story is illustrated with striking archival footage of the battle from both sides incorporated with notable contributions from some of the principal survivors.
