The Legendary Battle for Hill 875 – Dak To

In Vietnam in 1967, the American strategy required stopping the flow of Chinese arms and supplies from the North into the South. Hill 875 (named because it was 875 meters tall topographically) was the best place to stop them. The U.S. Army’s 4th Infantry Division and 173rd Airborne Brigade battled alongside South Vietnamese forces.

It’s a difficult but ultimately triumphant story of the men who sacrificed life and limb to take that hill.
