VIETNAM JOURNAL HAMBURGER HILL (MR)
The Battle of Hamburger Hill took place May 13-20, 1969 and was fought by U.S. Army and Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) forces against the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) of North Vietnam during Operation Apache Snow. The hill had little strategic value but U.S. command ordered its capture by a frontal assault. Upon capture by U.S. forces the hill was soon abandoned, falling back into North Vietnam hands. The action caused a controversy both within the American military and back home with the public. Don Lomax, who served during the Vietnam War and put to paper his experiences, tells the story of Hamburger Hill through the eyes of embedded war reporter Scott "Journal" Neithammer.
