PREVIEW: Operation Linebacker II


Between Dec. 18-29, 1972, hundreds of American B-52s and fighter aircraft dropped more than 20 thousand tons of bombs on the cities of Hanoi and Haiphong in North Vietnam. It was the largest aerial campaign since the close of WWII. The bombing was suspended on Christmas Day, but took up again on the 26th.

On Christmas Day 2018, The Baptist Blogger will post some lessons we’ve learned about warfare from our now 20-year fascination with President Nixon’s prosecution of the war — and yes, achievement of peace with honor — in Southeast Asia.

UPDATE: We got a little sidetracked with Christmas activities. The post goes up tomorrow (Thursday).
