The Battle of Dien Bien Phu was the climactic confrontation of the First Indochina War between the French and Viet Minh communist revolutionaries. A set piece battle from the French view before the event, it culminated in a comprehensive and humiliating French defeat. The Viet Minh captured 8,000 French and marched them 500 miles on foot to prison camps; less than half survived the march.
