30 May 1951
[Yen Phuc, Indochina]:
[SIDE B / H2H] [HISB] [CSL]:

The Viet Minh planned rapid thrusts to the east and south, to wipe out the line of weak Catholic militia posts between Ninh Binh and the sea. This plan included reoccupation of the Catholic bishopric of Phat Diem.

Phase 1 included plans to do a "reconnaissance in force" from Ninh Binh along Route 10 to Yen Phuc and if possible, beyond. Even while the battle raged in Ninh Binh, the 80th Battalion struck out along Route 10 on 30 May, 1951.

The French had sent Groupe Mobile No. 1 to recapture Ninh Binh. For additional support, the 7e Bataillon de Parachutistes Coloniaux was ordered to parachute into an area near the old post of Yen Phuc. This was also a reconnaissance operation, with the goal of securing the de Lattre Line along Route 10, and if possible, to link up with GM 1.

Paratroopers encountered a superior enemy, but inflicted heavy losses, and thwarted, by a series of counter-attacks, an encirclement maneuver. The Vietnamese company of the battalion, 7e Compagnie Indochinoise de Parachutistes, (C.I.P) distinguished themselves in the encounter.
