Book talk & signing with Richard Baker, author of FIRST A TORCH

Wednesday, Apr 24, 2013 7:00p

Dien Bien Phu, the battle between French and Vietnamese Communist forces (called the Vietminh) after WWII, took place at the town of Dien Biên in Vietnam. The defeat of over twenty-thousand French troops in May 1954 after a fifty-five day siege of the camp led directly to the division of Vietnam into two countries. Richard Baker's novel explores the siege through the story of a friendship between an American farmer and a Vietnamese peasant who find themselves on opposing forces during the battle
