In 1969, between May 11th and May 20th, the 101st Airborne Division fought the Vietcong in one of the bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. The battle was later dubbed Hamburger Hill because of the heavy artillery fire that turned the troops into hamburger meat. This film documents the 11 assaults it took to gain the hill amidst the stark reality of the horrors of war.
