Looking for any recommends about Dien Bien Phu, written by an English speaking member of the Legion, or at least one thats had a decent translation done.
I know there are books about the battle but I would much prefer to read about someones personal account of it.

If you look there's a translation of Col Langlais' account. Very good read, I have it as a pdf if my memory serves me.
 
two books you might already have read by Bernard B Fall if not you should

Hell in a very small place - the seige of Dien Bien Phu


Street without joy - The French debacle in indochina

I've never seen a first-hand Frog account in English although Bigeard wrote a few that haven't been translated.

Try 'The Last Valley' by Martin Windrow.
