    Battle of Dienbienphu

    62 years ago today, maybe plus or minus a day because of the international date line, the French lost the Battle of Dienbienphu.

    I only bring it up because I just finished reading a book about it. I am about to start a second book about it to gain a little different prespective.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!
