Indochine 1946-1954

I found this in a bookshop today and thought it looked really interesting, even if my schoolboy French isn't quite up to a fluent translation. It consists of a series of chapters each written by a veteran based on their own experiences and involvement in the war. As a result, it's a very eclectic but detailed text with lots of unusual photos of things that you don't normally see, as they're from personal collections. I was particularly interested in a chapter all about the improvised armoured trains and ones detailing the various armoured units that were deployed at various stages in the conflict.
