“Aerial Dien Bien Phu” is the inheritance and development of the Vietnamese military art tradition in the new era, historic Ho Chi Minh era; deserves to be a triumphant peak of modern Vietnamese military culture.
Dien Bien Phu campaign with the victory “splendid five continents, earthquake” (May 7, 1954) successfully ended the 9-year resistance war against the French of our army and people. Since then, Dien Bien Phu has become a shining symbol in the history of the struggle to defend the country of the modern Vietnamese nation. And it is no coincidence, in the war against the US to save the country, the press and public opinion named the victory of our army and people over the strategic air raid with Richard Nixon administration’s B52 aircraft on Ha. In December 1972, Noi, Hai Phong was Dien Bien Phu in the air. This is a direct, strategic confrontation of our army and people with a very modern and powerful strategic US air force. The most advanced means of war have failed before the great strength of the will of Vietnam, of the art of the Vietnamese people’s war. That strength is partly made up of our troops and people who have entered the war with the posture of being ready to fight, the spirit of vigilance, and a firm mindset.
