The French in Vietnam

The definitive account of the beginnings of French colonisation in Indochina and the conquest of southern Vietnam: Saigon became a French possession as early as 1859. Léopold Auguste Charles Pallu de la Barrière, to give him his full name which he does not use on the title-page here, was a naval officer (eventually a Rear Admiral) who had served in the Crimean War, and subsequently in the 1860 expedition to China. He was governor of New Caledonia in the early 1880s.
