The word 'hill' is a misnomer when it comes to RVN. We in the US, generally think of a hill as a slight to moderate rise culminating in a single rounded top.
Rarely the case over there. A series of 'mini hills and valleys' that made up the main hill.
I was reminded of this when I thought about trying to figure-out where the toughest battlefield terrain was.
Was it the trenches of WWI?
The Chosin winter in Korea?
The beaches of Normandy?
The jungles of Vietnam?
The deserts of Iraq?
That vague rabbit hole got way-deep way-quick...
