On 2 March 1965, following an attack on a US Marine Barracks at Pleiku, Operation Flaming Dart, Operation Rolling Thunder and Operation Arc Light commenced. This intense bombing campaign, which ultimately lasted three years, was intended to force North Vietnam to cease its support for the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam by threatening to destroy North Vietnam's air defenses and industrial infrastructure and to bolster the morale of the South Vietnamese.
Ultimately the US involvement in Vietnam was ineffective. On 15 January 1973, President Richard Nixon announced the suspension of US offensive action against North Vietnam. The Paris Peace Accords on "Ending the war and restoring peace in Vietnam" were signed on 27 January 1973, officially ending direct US involvement in the Vietnam Conflict.
