It also pays tribute to the soldiers, frontier workers, and youth volunteers who laid down their lives for the victory.

The book is also considered valuable for historical and military researchers, museums and students.

On March 13, 1954, the Vietnamese revolutionary army launched the first attack against the French colonialists’ heavily fortified base of Điện Biên Phủ, starting a 56-day historic campaign whose victory directly led to the signing of the Geneva Accords on ending the war and restoring peace in Indochina

The Dien Bien Phu Victory marked the significant growth of Vietnamese artillery. After 56 days and nights, the artillery unit accomplished its mission, contributing to the world-shaking victory.
