How to move in Dien Bien Phu: The Final Gamble

Soldiers were stepping carefully in the valley of Dien Bien Phu

Dien Bien Phu: The Final Gamble is one of the best wargames ever made. It tells a rich story of an atypical siege of about thirty small strongpoints distributed in a "rice bowl" of 17 x 6 km. For two months, the Viet Minh bombarded, surrounded with entrenchment and sapping, and attacked French strongpoints one after the other.

The designer of the game segmented the action in numerous phases relatively easy to follow, but the conditions of movement vary from case to case. This player aid shows all details to be considered when your VM of French units begin to move on the field. Use it immoderately!
