Bataille de Diên Biên Phu, 13 – 17 mars 1954. – ECPAD
Battle of Peleliu WW II 9-15-1944--10-15-1944 The battle was officially known as Operation Stalemate II but the survivors still call it The Forgotten Battle. It was one of the last big Pacific battles of World War II and one of the bloodiest. Even the names associated with this small coral strip of land in the Palau islands sound hostile and discordant: Bloody Nose Ridge, the Pocket, Five Sisters, Five Brothers or the China Wall.

This is the battle of Dien Bien Phu. During this combat, the French fought the Vietminh in a battle in North Vietnam. The rebels defeated the French after 56 days because of sheer numbers and artillery. I would infer the objects being dropped on the parachutes are bombs or soldiers. I would ask what the parachutes are carrying and who was dropping them?
