    And some glaring errors.

    Page XVI on the Historical timeline, under 1951, October 2-6, the Battle fo Nghia Lo is listed as a DRV (Viet Minh) Victory.

    Apparently they are confusing the second battle of Nghia Lo, which took place in October 1952, with the first battle of Nghia Lo, which the 1st Thai Battalion held against Giap's Regulars once the Paras dropped in to cut their supply lines. The French were the clear victors of the 1951 battle.

    "Viet Minh Attack at Nghia Lo", by yours truly, in the October 1990 issue of Vietnam Magazine, pp. 46-52.
