520    "For seven long years hundreds of young US airmen flew 
       sortie after sortie against North Vietnam's formidable and
       strategically important bridge, dodging a heavy 
       concentration of anti-aircraft fire and enemy MiG planes. 
       Many American airmen were shot down, killed, or captured 
       and taken to the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" POW camp. But 
       after each air attack, when the smoke cleared and the 
       debris settled, the bridge stubbornly remained standing. 
       For the North Vietnamese it became a symbol of their 
       invincibility; for US war planners an obsession; for US 
       airmen a testament to American mettle and valor. Using 
       after-action reports, official records, and interviews 
       with surviving pilots, as well as untapped Vietnamese 
       sources, Dragon's Jaw chronicles American efforts to 
       destroy the bridge, strike by bloody strike, putting 
       readers into the cockpits, under fire"--|cPublisher's
