About 50 years ago last week the battle of Hamburger Hill was fought in the jungle covered terrain of the A Shau valley west of Hue. It was a major battle marked by the courage and determination of both sides as they struggled for control of the dominating feature over the 10-day battle. Few people acknowledge the role of ARVN in the battle. Even fewer know that an Australian advisor was there. Read about the battle in the recent post ‘An Australian at Hamburger Hill’.
