Dien Bien Phu, some pictures in memory - Part 3 Units relieving and first operations around the base

With the replacement of some paratroopers units by Legion, North African and Thaï battalions, the establishing of the heavy artillery and on base air assets during the month of December, Dien Bien Phu enter a period of misleading routine. This false sense of security and superiority will soon be shattered by the first operations around the base and the rapid observation of a tightening of the vietminh encirclement.
