Dien Bien Phu

Ever since reading Bernard Fall's Street Without Joy and Hell in a Very Small Place, I've been fascinated by the French experience in Indochina. In fact, I'm doing a research paper on the subject for a French history class I'm taking this semester. This fascination makes it all the more annoying that I have not yet been able to view this film:

A clip depicting the final fall of the fortress used to be on YouTube, but got pulled awhile ago.
