In retrospect, the battle of Hamburger Hill qualifies, hands-down, as perhaps the single most brutal and visceral struggle of the Vietnam War. The event in question (a veritable suicide mission) witnessed a platoon of approximately twelve men attempting to take Hill 937 in the Ashau Valley - and sacrificing most of their lives to bands of Viet Cong soldiers who continually bombarded the invaders with a hailstorm of grenades and gunshots. In the process, the Viet Cong wiped out an estimated 70% of the platoon with a relatively small number of fighters. The History Channel documentary Declassified: Viet Cong revisits this pivotal event with a myriad of personal, intimate and revealing stories from both sides of the battle - and reveals how the United States Army made one of its most colossal mistakes in Ashau by employing strategies used in World War II that were utterly inappropriate, ill-advised and futile for Southeast Asia. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
