Hamburger Hill (1987)
|A very realistic interpretation of one of the bloodiest battles of the vietnam war.|
Editor's NoteIt was Vietnam, 1969, Hill 937, 10 days, 70 percent casualties. Those are the facts. This is the story: dodge the gunfire, get caught behind enemy lines, go into battle beside the brave young men who fought and died, and feel their desperation and futility.
