Operation Lam Son 719

On March 7, 1971, more than a thousand US planes engaged in bombing missions, along with combat missions involving hundreds of helicopters, in a war that was supposed to be nearly over, in a battle intended to prove that the US was no longer needed. Operation Lam Son 719 is both little remembered and little understood, but, might well have represented a final turning point in the American war in Vietnam
