[Side A][HIS][CSL]:

At 0700 on August 10th, 1948, French Parachutists from 2e BCCP jumped from Dakota's near the village of Giong Dinh. Intelligence determined that a Viet Minh headquarters was located in the area and was establishing a cadre for offensive operations.

The French plan was to surround the village and conduct a search and destroy operation in order to capture the headquarters and any weapons and supplies that would be found.
