[Tu Vu, Vietnam]: [SIDE A / H2H] [HIS] [CSL]:

The Black River served as part of the communications network that supplied Hoa Binh, as Route 6 leading from Xuan-Mai was plagued with ambushes. Along the river, were a number of outposts that helped protect the landing barges as they traveled upriver to Hoa Binh.

Tu Vu was one such post, defended by two Moroccan rife companies and a platoon of tanks. General Giap ordered regiments of the 308 and 312 Divisions to assault and destroy Tu Vu.

Their assault began after a mortar barrage at 2100 on December 9th. The screams of Tiên-lên! ("Forward!") filled the night air as the Vietnamese infantry advanced without regard to loss.

The weak dwindling supply for the Viet Minh was their downfall coupled with fixed leaders and pop gun mortars. The French are dug in with 105mm howitzers with strong artillery ammo support. Against experienced players its a French victory all the time.
