It is a war movie about a famous Vietnam War battle.  It chronicles the 101st Airborne’s assault on Hill 937 in the Ashau Valley in May, 1969.  The script was written by a “Screaming Eagles” veteran who served in Vietnam in 1968-69.  The director, John Irvin (who did the stylistically similar “When Trumpets Fade”) had done documentaries in Vietnam.  He cast a group of unknown actors, some of whom have gone on to big careers.
