Des de la sortida de les columnes llibertàries per la frontera el 1939 fins a la desfeta francesa al Vietnam el 1954, El tango de Dien Bien Phu és una novel.la coral que explora en les biografies de personatges anònims tots els accents dels lluitadors que no van tenir por de la derrota.

A través de les investigacions de Dani Cajal, a qui ja coneixíem per les novel.les El cel de l'infern (premi Crexells 1999) i No miris enrere (premi Sant Jordi 2001), el relat reconstrueix, a partir de testimonis directes, llibres de memòries i documents d'arxius militars, tota la peripècia d'una generació que va patir la Guerra Civil, els camps de concentració fran¡cesos, la Segona Guerra Mundial i, en molts casos, la continuació en els conflictes de la postguerra.

L'excusa de la recerca de la lletra d'un tango de Gardel, que va ser l'himne d'Argelers, li serveix al narrador per revisitar escenaris i moments gairebé oblidats d'alguns dels epi¡sodis més sagnants del segle XX, que van tenir com a protagonistes molts dels nostres ascendents. Sense cap voluntat de revenja, la novel.la desfà les interpretacions heroiques i, sense jutjar, ofereix un retrat dels comba¡tents sense aspiració de glòria.
