Vietnam War Dictionary


Conducted between May 10th and October 23rd 1972, Operation Linebacker was a U.S. bombing campaign that successfully halted the Communist’s Easter Offensive and led to the resumption of peace negotiations. Unlike the earlier Rolling Thunder operations, Linebacker targeted Hanoi’s war support infrastructure and transportation system and cut off the flow of supplies into the port of Haiphong.
