Vietnam Memoir

More than a generation after it ended, Americans are still looking for ways to comprehend what was, at the time it ended, the country's longest war.

Here we offer a series of articles reporting the experiences of aircrews who fought in Vietnam and analyzing U.S. air combat strategies and culture of the time. From the emergence of the helicopter to B-52 bombing campaigns to postwar meetings between U.S. and North Vietnamese airmen, our "Vietnam Memoir" series examines the airplanes and missions that figured prominently in the lives of a generation of veterans.
