Top things to know before tours to Dien Bien Phu Battlefield
The Battle of Dien Bien Phu was the climactic confrontation of the First Indochina War between the French Union's French Far East Expeditionary Corps and Viet Minh communist-nationalist revolutionaries. It was, from the French view earlier than the occasion, a set piece battle to attract out the Vietnamese and destroy them with superior firepower. The battle occurred between March and May 1954 and culminated in a complete French defeat that influenced negotiations over the way forward for Indochina at Geneva.
