Family’s Eugene Poilane in Khe Sanh

As the trees grew, so did the Poilane family. Madame Bordeauducq, Eugène’s formidable first wife, who bore him 3 children, kept her maiden name to show her independence. Indeed, when Poilane divorced her, Bordeauducq merely moved a kilometer down the road and started a plantation of her own.  Then, he then had 2 other children with another vietnamese woman (he did not marry her) and after the 5 other children with his second wife.
