To The Banjoest.

I carry no brief for the French Foreign Legion, one way or the other, but to say they never surrender is just not right.
Amongst others that were in the hell called Dien Ben Phu were the 1st. FFL Battalion, the 2nd. FFL Parachute Battalion and a half Brigade of the FFL 3/13th.
Okay, so the spin doctors may say that if you don't put the white flag up, then, technically you're not surrendering. Well, we all know there's more to it than that. Surrendering is not having the means, or the will, or both, to maintain the fight. Hundreds of soldiers from the above units were captured by Giaps victorious Viet Minh. Bloody hard to be captured if you don't give in and, where I come from, that's surrender dude.
