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)?

If that is the movie I think it is then I have seen it and it is a complete piece of #%#$

This on the other hand is an excellent film with the Soviet/Afghanistan conflict as backround : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beast_(1988_film)
