General Note / OCR

Vietnam, 1969, Hill 937, 10 days, 70% casualties. Those are the facts--this is the story. The men of Bravo Company are facing a battle that's all up-hill...up Hamburger Hill. 14 war-weary soliders are battling for a mud-covered mound of earth so name because it chews up soliders like chopped meat. They are fighting for their country , their fellow soliders and their lives. War is hell, but this is worse. Hamburger Hill tells it the way it was, the way it really was. It's raw, gritty and totally unrelenting dramatic depiction of one of the fiercest battles of America's bloodiest war. Dodge the gunfire. Get caught up behind enemy lines. Go into battle beside the brave young men who fought and died. Feel their desperation and gutility. This happened. Hamburger Hill--war at its worst, men at their best.
