"Lone Star Lady"
by Philip E West
Led by The Lone Star Lady, B-52 Stratofortresses based at Anderson AFB on
the island of Guam,
head for Hanoi, North Vietnam, During the Strategic Air Command's Operation
during the winter of 1972.
By the end of December 1972, after 729 operational sorties during eleven
days of continual air strikes
Hanoi and Haiphong, the B-52 bombers of Strategic Air Command finally brought
North Vietnam to its knees.
They had fired off well over 1200 surface-to-air missiles, virtually exhausting
their ground defenses,
it became clear that any renewal of air strikes would devastate the country.
The North Vietnamese were at last ready for peace.
