Jacob Van Staaveren (au); Richard P. Hallion (fw). The U.S. Air Force (USAF) reached its nadir during the opening two years of the Rolling Thunder (RT) air campaign in North Vietnam (NV) which began in March 1965. Never had the USAF operated with so many restraints & to so little effect. The initial intent of RT was to signal U.S. determination so that NV might cease its support of the communist insurgency in SV. In time, however, RT became a long campaign to interdict soldiers & supplies moving from NV into SV. Van Staaveren wrote this book in the 1970s. He was an USAF historian & began to write about the Vietnam War while it was still being fought. This volume has been declassified, & is being published for the first time. Van Staaveren reviewed the manuscript before pub. B&W photos.
