For forty years, the “Dakota” wore French colours throughout the world. The C-47s were used during the Indochina conflict and the hell of Dien Bien Phu. They were deployed across the skies of many countries and in France were used in the training of crews. With unpublished testimonials, over 1,000 photographs and many profiles this reference book details the career of the “Dakota” under the French cockades. French text and captions.
