The sweet­ness of colo­nial life was in sharp con­trast with the poverty of the coun­try peo­ple and the forced sub­mis­sion of the “Annamese”. A revolt against the French set­tlers was brew­ing up and get­ting organ­ised in the jun­gle around the Viet­minh. How was France going to react? Nei­ther de Gaulle nor his suc­ces­sors had been able to under­stand that for the Viet­namese, inde­pen­dence was irre­versible. Yet, some men with good­will tried for a year to give peace a chance. Those who were for the recon­quest won and France blindly threw itself into the first colo­nial war. All a peo­ple got mobilised to resist.
