Event Description: In the epic battle of Dien Bien Phu, Vietnamese soldiers under General Giap defeated French forces after a bloody 55-day siege. This event led to a decision made at Geneva, which heralded the end of the French Empire in Indochina and the increased American role in Vietnam. In this class, we will discuss the link between this 1954 military defeat and diplomatic surrender, as well as what led the Americans to replace the French in Vietnam. The lecturer, Bruce Beardsley, served in Vietnam from 1965-1966 and 1970-1972. He recently visited the Dien Bien Phu battle site. Instructor: Bruce Beardsley This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Kassandra Dafcik at cll@hodges.edu or (239) 598-6143.
