Additional Mobile Groups

Message  Dan Morris le Mer 12 Avr - 19:09

Hi,

I am adding the Mobile Groups formed by the CEFEO during the withdraw from Tonkin starting in June 1954. As the defensive line around the Red River Delta in Zone South evacuated as part of Operation AUVERGNE, the released troops were formed into GML ( Group Mobile Light) to prepare for a war of movement will replace the former positional warfare.
Here is the List of GML created. If anyone has more or different information to share I would be grateful.

It gives an insight into how many units were not available for mobile operations due to the static positions in which they were committed.
