The air war s inauguration with the nickname Rolling Thunder followed an eleven-year American effort to induce communist North Vietnam to sign a peace treaty without openly attacking its territory. Thus, Rolling Thunder was a new military program in what had been a relatively low-key attempt by the United States to win the war within South Vietnam against insurgent communist Viet Cong forces, aided and abetted by the north. The Flaming Dart strikes were carried out against North Vietnam in February 1965 as the precursors to a regular, albeit limited, Rolling Thunder air program launched the following month.

Van Staaveren effectively captures the thoughts of President Lyndon B. Johnson, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara, Gen Earle G. Wheeler (then the chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff), and other prominent leaders and political figures. The author's discussion of the attacks against North Vietnamese surface-to-air (SAM) missiles in 1966 is particularly striking. He addresses both the initial indecisiveness of American civilian leaders with regard to striking the SAMs and the subsequent limitations they placed on Air Force and Navy aircrews who targeted the missiles.

The air war against North Vietnam was launched with the nickname Rolling Thunder. This book covers the first phase from March 1965 to late 1966. It begins with the planning and execution of two initial limited air strikes, nicknamed Flaming Dart I and II. As the air campaign gradually expanded and the permissible targeting area moved northward, many in Washington believed "air power" could never win the war in the north. The United States Air Force reached its nadir during the opening two years of the Rolling Thunder air campaign in North Vietnam. Never had the Air Force operated with so many restraints and to so little effect. These pages are painful but necessary reading for all who care about the nation's military power. The author served as a historian for over twenty years with the Air Force history program. (Originally published by the Air Force History and Museums Program)

This is a reprint of the first publication. There is no color map of Viet Nam at the front like the original and many of the photos are poor. There is also an advertisement in the middle of the book. Get a copy with the color photo of the F-105 on the front if possible. This one is a bust unless you are merely interested in the text, which at least appears to match the first book.

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
