On this week's episode of NAM-TV, we continue our story with a look at the First Indochina War (1946-1954), in which France attempted to reconquer Vietnam by fighting the Viet Minh, Ho Chi Minh's increasingly powerful revolutionary movement. With the United States secretly funding the French side, and the rest of the world more or less staying out of it, the war culminates (spoiler alert!) in a stunning victory for the Viet Minh at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu. How did the Viet Minh achieve this "impossible" feat? And what will be the terms of their victory? For full episode subscribe at patreon.com/nostalgiatrap.
