Here are a French Report archives in chronological order about the Sino Vietnamese conflict in 1979 but is in French Language . Taken from this place http://www.ina.fr/ I try translated some thing during the Entire video SORRY if I do a Mistake so the French and English are not my natives Languages.

After the Vietnamese invasion of Kampuchea against the Pro Chinese criminal Pol Regime the People's Republic of China Pol Pol allied do a military retaliation against Vietnam with partial US diplomatic Support the Chinese Chinese vice Premier Deng Xiaoping visit US just few days before the attack into Vietnamese territory the Chinese invasion failed in a few weeks but the PLA Caused major damage in six border places into Vietnamese territory this also caused a important quantity of Vietnamese refugees aka "Boat people"

After 1979 China and US star a strategic Alliance against the Soviet Union and good economical cooperation between the two powers.

This conflict in my personal opinion looking like Vietnam (With Russian Assistance) vs China (With partial US diplomatic support) the causalities in this conflicts are totally unclear according with the Russians 62,500 Chinese soldiers were killed and Vietnamese causalities were less than 10,000. According with pro Chinese Internet sites Chinese casualties at about 20,000 to 30,000 while Vietnamese loss at about 40,000 to 60,000. more Neutral sources from US said estimates suggest at least 20,000 Chinese soldiers died, while Vietnamese dead number under ten thousand.

During this conflict the most quantity of Vietnamese regular forces around the 80% were in Cambodia this critical siltation forced Hanoi the mobilization "Second Line" troops against the PLA With important numerical superiority.

In the entire Video we can see interview and opinions with some French military veterans from the first Indochina War and French Internationalist experts.

Please debate with Respect.
