Excellent analysis of the political background to the French and American involvement in French Indochina.
If the reader is interested in a better understanding of the political background and results of the decisive battle of Dien Bien Phu then this is an excellent choice. If, however, one's interest runs more toward military history then he/she would be better served by purchasing Bernard Fall's classic work "Hell in a Very Small Place". The author's description of the siege is rather cursory and the maps are so sketchy as to be next to useless.
