Dien Bien Phu
14 Dec 1953 - a French Ready for Showdown HANOI,...
a French Ready for Showdown HANOI, Indo-C_ina/(#) — The French high command said today today "everything is ready" for a showdown battle with the Viet Minn troops closing in on Dien Bien Phu, France's last big stronghold in the mountainous Thai country of Northwest Indo- China. The isolated, thatched-hut village village became France's last-ditch position against Viet Minli troops holding most of the Thai country when the French last week abandoned abandoned Lai Chau, the tribal capital.
