Dien Bien Phu moves ATS line forward into the early phase of what would later be known as The Vietnam War. With the 1949 Communist success in China, their comrades in Indochina were incited to plan a war to free their country from the French colonial empire. General Giap led his troops into an unsuccessful direct confrontation with the weakened, but still strong post-WWII French military machine - a gambit he would later regret. It would not be until the end of 1953 that the Viet Minh could rebuild to create an even stronger force than before: fielding six infantry divisions and a heavy artillery division - with gun crews trained in China. Facing unrest in Algeria and political upheaval in France, General Henri Navarre took command in French Indochina - with plans for decisive action against the Viet Minh using a new concept in military strategy: the air-land base, or 'airhead' in the midst of enemy positions.Dien Bien Phu expands ATS with new combatants, cartography and situations. The battle for a series of strong-points known as Champs Elysees is depicted utilizing the new historical map plus a set of exciting scenarios that are played on it. What's more, there are already additional French Indochina War maps and scenarios in the works to increase the value of this product with new expansion packs. Dien Bien Phu is NOT a complete game.
