Border Campaign of 1950

The Border Campaign of 1950 was launched in February of that year and resulted in a series of Viet Minh victories against French forces along the Vietnamese border with the People’s Republic of China. Viet Minh forces under General Vo Nguyen Giap received substantial supplies from China and the Soviet Union and defeated the French at Lai Khe, Dong Khe, Cao Bang, and Lang Son and destroyed a French airborne battalion south of Cao Bang. Retreating French troops were repeatedly ambushed along Route 4, and by the time they reached the safety of the Red River Delta, the French had suffered 6,800 killed, wounded, and missing.
