Don’t get too excited xeneize. This may be the result of someone opening a military history encyclopaedia at random and picking out the name of the campaign/event his pen fell on.

@Painty - alas, he misspelled 'Decolonization', and the English teacher within me feels compelled to point out that Dien Bien Phu, being a proper noun, should be capitalised, and the initial 'Its' should be apostrophised, as it's a contraction of 'It is'.

I doint´t care about the grammar/spelling, I understand what he mean (and it´s more than a word). It´s a good subject (and a special year now...), an important battle, enough information to fill a book, can do artwork, are commercial (and right forum).

Same here, xeneize. I just can't understand why they don't make a campaign and fortress books out of this battle...

While waiting for an Osprey on Dien Bien Phu track down a copy of John Keegan's Battle Book #33 Ballentine's Illustrated History of the Violent Century of Dien Bien Phu.Try Ebay first or your local second hand bookstore(a dying breed) first as some book search websites have some mind boggling asking prices for a book that started life at $2!!!

Oh yes, I missed that on Andyana. Or shall I just pretend that I thought it would be a book about the peasant masses rising up to get rid of all those repressive Colins?

I own Howard Gerrard's good book on Dien Bien Phu and would love an Osprey book on the subject.

Dien Bien Phu is counted as one of the most important battles of the 20th Century, it convinced the French that their hold on Indo-China was becoming more and more untenable and the result of the battle made carrying the war on politically unacceptable. For that reason Bien Dien Phu should be counted in the top 100 most decisive battles of human history.
