March 14, 2024

PARIS — The French Defence Audiovisual Agency (ECPAD) has released a photo book on the Điện Biên Phủ campaign in Việt Nam, including never-before-seen images, on the occasion of the campaign's 70th anniversary. On this occasion, the agency, where many documents and photos related to wars in Indochina are kept, has introduced the website featuring Điện Biên Phủ campaign photos to the public, at imagesdefense.gouv.fr. It has also participated in producing two documentaries on the wars in Indochina, including parts on the Điện Biên Phủ campaign. 70 years ago, on March 13, 1954, the Vietnamese revolutionary army launched the first attack against the French colonialists’ heavily fortified base of Điện Biên Phủ, starting an historic 56-day campaign. The entire so-called “invincible” military base of Điện Biên Phủ was completely eradicated by the Vietnamese army and people.
