    This would make a heck of a movie... or two.The entire first day of Op LINEBACKER I. Among the action, the authors recount the Paul Dormer Bridge attack, Richie/DeBellevue Mig kill, Lodge/Locher shootdown, and Cunningham/Driscoll's triple-kill, and Locher's survival and rescue from the ground of North Vietnam. Combines high detail with readable action scenes, well researched from all sources available in the late 80s and shows perspectives of North Vietnamese military and civilians as well as international journalists and diplomats.

    I think it as a very interesting way to deal with the subject: To describe the air operations over North Vietnam for one specific day in history. In details from documents, transcripts of radio communications and interviews. Surely gives a picture of the complexity of an airraid In general I can only recommend Jeffrey L. Ethell and Alfred Price.

    Eminently readable, with good maps in adequate number. A good snapshot of a long campaign of attrition.I was able to knock this out in one long morning, while the power was out.

    A whole book devoted to all of the operations and plans by the Air Force & Navy as well as North Vietnamese defenders. Well written and documented.

    Tells of the 1st aerial operations of Nixon's Linebacker II campaign, resulting in the largest aerial battle of the Vietnam War & making Randy Cunningham the only U. S. Navy ace of the war
