Dien Bin Phu ejected the French from Indochina.
1st Air Cav Div, Bin Dinh Province, Feb '67 thru Jan '68.
The First Vietnames War was an effort to remove Vietnam from colonial rule by France. It ended at Dien Bin Phu, however by this time tht US was already involved as a result of such things as the CIA's assistance with such things as "Air America" which had provided air transport and delivery elements during that conflict. The Second Vietnamese War or the Vietnamese- American war was simply a continuation of the conflict. US Forces were introduced as advisors to the South Vietnamese Military and the situation slowly and gradually increased. The end resulst was a unified Vietnam under Communist control. i guess that's okay. i would say to prevent the spread of communism. from the American point of view.

Ich bin Hitler
Hitler did far more harm than anything bin Laden has done so far, so on that basis Hitler would have to be judged the winner of the contest for most evil person.
Northwestern Vietnam .
The Viet Minh defeated the French .
Last battle, last French defeat, ended the war.
The Americans wanted to stop communism from spreading. Also the defeat of France at Dien Bin Phu played a major part in the entry of the US.
The battle took place on the west side of Dien Bien district, in Lai Chau province, 500 km northwest of Hanoi. Dien Bien Phu is surrounded by mountains and lies in the Muong Thanh valley, a 20-km long and 6-km wide heart-shaped basin. The Nam Rom River runs across the valley, which is why the Dien Bien Phu valley is so fertile.
Isolationists made little effort in the early (Post Dien Bin Phu) days. It was the anti war protests against the war and the draft that fought against the Vietnam War.
8,290 died in captivity .
Containing Communism was the reason for aid to the French. Dien Bin Phu meant that the French had to withdraw and the US simply filled the vacumn.
Perhaps the best known is the Siege at Dien Bin Phu although the French have served well and honarably all over the world since that 1954 disaster.
