Operation Linebacker

U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force planes launched Linebacker I against North Vietnam in response to the enemy's April 1972 Easter offensive in South Vietnam. The massive U.S. air campaign, along with successful South Vietnamese ground operations, compelled the enemy to negotiate. In December, when negotiations stalled, President Nixon ordered Linebacker II, which led to the Paris peace agreement of January 23, 1973.
