Operation Rolling Thunder

Rolling Thunder was the longest bombing campaign ever conducted by American air power. Under President Johnson's direction, U.S. Navy and Air Force planes executed 1 million sorties against bridges, power plants, and supply depots in North Vietnam from March 1965 to November 1968. Despite this sustained U.S. effort, the North Vietnamese kept their forces supplied in South Vietnam and Laos.
