Abstract:
Unseasonably good weather in the northern part of the country in late October permitted a marked increase of effort against key targets near Hanoi, Haiphong, and throughout the northeast area. Poor weather in southern North Vietnam restricted strike activity in the Panhandle during the entire period. The general capability of the transportation network declined. The interdiction of the two key Hanoi bridges over the Canal des Rapides and the Red River effectively disrupts through rail traffic to Hanoi from Haiphong, Lao Cai, Dong Dang, and Thai Nguyen. These interdictions, in conjunction with the road and rail interdictions around Haiphong, have created the most serious disruptions to date, forcing the use of alternate modes to permit the movement of goods. Significant strikes were also conducted against Phuc Yen and other jet airfields.
