Publisher Description

U.S. Navy Intelligence Contribution Key to SE Asia War Effort from 1965-75

If you are intrigued by behind-the-scenes knowledge or secretive reconnaissance, this volume may interest you?  It shares the story of intelligence gathering within Laos with patrol boats then supplemented by submarines, and high-altitude aircrafts also known as patrol plane missions.  You will learn about the Navy’s Tactical Reconnaissance by using Light Photographic squadron crusaders that could capture the terrain of the North Vietnam course within Southeast Asia.  The SR-71 “Blackbird” aerial intelligence fleet is introduced in this volume to capture the importance of photoreconnaissance as a military strategic tactic for naval intelligence since it can improve operational commands and coordination between units and forces. As the enemies advanced within South Vietnam, this intelligence also played a significant role to document Communist agents and deploy SEALs’ best efforts. Intelligence in the “Linebacker Campaign” is also introduced in this historic volume.  The Linebacker campaign showed that the reconnaissance of photography and deep review and analysis provided future successes of the Navy-Marine amphibious operations and infiltration of campaigns.
