  • Books on this period

    Hi all
    While there is literally huge amounts of literature on Americas time (fact and fiction) in Vietnam as far as I know only two books on the French war both fact books on Dien Bien Phu (Windrow and Falls). Are there any others out there that people know whether either fact or fiction cheers

    Here is a site on works by French writers on the first Indochina War.

    You will have to know French though as the titles are only available in French!

    Also you would want to check out works by Jules Roy as he writes books on the Indochina War and Dien Bien Phu. Unfortunately they are only French too.

    For English works, there are many you can find. The one that comes to my mind right now is So Full A Glory,a biography on Jean De Lattre De Tassigny.

    I will post some more works after I check my current library of books and other writers that publish English works you can check out!

        There is available in English the book of Jules Roy "The battle of DBP"
        Also in English, "Vietnam 1946" from Mr Tonnesson; and DBP from Mr Simpson
        Hope you enjoy them
        A prayer's as good as bayonet on a day like this!
