Air War Over South Vietnam 1968-1975 by Bernard C. Nalty 2000 First Edition
The communist attacks in February 1968 during Tet- the Vietnamese New Year- shocked the administration of President Lyndon Johnson and the general population of the united States. While a defeat militarily, the attacks produced a victory in the shaken confidence of the United States in the military goals in Vietnam. Following Tet, the emphasis changed. South Vietnam assumed a larger responsibility for fighting the war and the U.S. ground troops began to depart in rapidly growing numbers, increasing the importance of U.S. air power. Air power stopped an invasion in 1972. but the absence of aerial protection in 1975 allowed a North Vietnamese invasion to topple the government in the south, bringing an end to long, bitter, bloody conflict.
