Explore historic battles and military events that had a lasting impact on the people and cultures of the world. Important sieges of the ancient and modern world are included, and their impact on subsequent regional or world history is discussed. The series reflects an international approach, including sieges from North America, Russia, and the Near and Far East. The siege of Dien Bien Phu in 1954 was the culmination of a century-long struggle between the French and the Vietnamese. The loss of Dien Bien Phu, and the subsequent withdrawal of the French from Indochina, was a harbinger of the American experience in Vietnam only a decade later.
