Vietnam War/Vietnam Cease-fire Campaign (72-73)/Battle of Haiphong Harbor
From Month/Year
May / 1972
To Month/Year
May / 1972

May 10 was a day of spectaculars for the new Navy.

Three cruisers, led by the Newport News with her eight-inch guns, and two destroyers pulled close to North Vietnamese coast and hit targets only four miles from Haiphong in what the Navy called "the first multi-cruiser gunfire action since World War II."

Navy publicists began calling the Newport News "the fastest gun in the West" and the Oklahoma City "the gray ghost of the Vietnam Coast."
