France had been meddlign in Souh East Asia since 1860. By 1872 they were well-esablished in Cochin-China (formerly South Vietnam) and looking to expand their control over the rest of the region. This work studies how a small force of a few hundred men and some gunboats overran all of what used to be called North Vietna.
