I picked French Indochina because there wasn't a both choice.

As one of the last Members of the old Brown Water Navy it is one of the few eras I can play with units I truly understand.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Writing in issue 69 of the Journal of the Society of Twentieth Century Wargamers, Huw R. Davies provides a solo mini-campaign set in the French Indochina War, and points out how it differs from the later Vietnam War:

The French Indochina war was very much a small unit war, fought in towns, villages, paddy fields, & jungles throughout Vietnam. Unlike the later American war the French had much less of a material superiority over their opponents. What they did have was an abundance of colourful units & interesting equipment.

Which war would you rather game?
