Battle for Hill 3234


Recommended Posts

Came across this interesting Wikipedia entry by coincidence

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_for_Hill_3234

39 Soviet soldiers in Afghanistan participated in this battle:

- 2 awarded Hero of Soviet Union

- the other 37 awarded both Order of Red Banner and Order of Red Star

6 out of the 39 were KIA and 28 were wounded in action

 

Most decorated unit in a single battle (in Afghanistan)?
