    Some surrendering German soldiers had been coerced into joining French Legionaires to fight in the Dien Bien Phu battle. My Vietnamese old friend had been their superior on the French side.

      Yes, I read a little about it after you told me. German soldiers was active for many years around Asia, Africa and South America. As fighting men, organizers, trainers, arms dealer, developers and producers.
      It is sad and a shame, that some were coerced to do it.
