Abstract:
The intensified air war against North Vietnam has shown increased effectiveness in many ways: 1) the cost of bomb damage in the past four months almost equals the total damage inflicted in 1966; 2) most of modern industry is now at a standstill, thus neutralizing a decade of economic growth; 3) the rail transport system is now coping with its most serious disruption to date; 4) the port of Haiphong is confronted with a growing resupply burden; and 5) the regime has been forced to adopt a more rigid evacuation program, now involving essential as well as non-essential activities and personnel. At the same time, however, Hanoi continues to meet the needs of the Communist in South Vietnam and essential military and economic traffic continues to move.
