Abstract:

The following report examines the role of the U.S. Air Force in the interdiction campaign in Southeast Asia from its beginning in December 1964 through the early months of 1967. From the initial operations, involving few aircraft but much discussion, a series of ever-expanding programs were undertaken which, by spring of 1967, had grown into a concerted effort to inhibit enemy movement along the length of Laos and across the breadth of North Vietnam. Individual programs making up the overall interdiction effort have been reported in greater detail in separate CHECO studies i.e., Tiger Hound, Night Interdiction in Southeast Asia, Tally Ho, and The War in the DMZ. This study outlines their relationship to each other and to the total campaign, and introduces other programs involved in the overall interdiction effort for Southeast Asia.
