Notes

Abstract: During the Vietnam War, the belief that American air power was not only superior to all opposing nations but could also defeat a less organized, less advanced nation alone pervaded many of those in power in the American government. The first was proved true, but the latter failed after many unsuccessful attempts to seek peace through military victories and diplomacy. Initially, the North Vietnamese were unwilling to accept any agreement for peace short of their own victory over the South. Though the “Linebacker” bombings in 1972 likely caused the North Vietnamese to attend and accept the 1973 Paris Peace Accords, their return to hostility two years later proved that air power alone cannot defeat a motivated enemy.
