Hold at all Costs Trailer (2010)

Trailer for the documentary Hold at all Costs.

The Battle of OP Harry, Korea. The Story of Forgotten Soldiers, in a Forgotten Battle of a Forgotten War. By the end of the Korean War the US 3rd Infantry Division had orders to hold OP Harry at all costs -- the Chinese intended to seize it. On 10 June 1953, 3,500 Chinese assaulted that position, defended by King Company, 15th Infantry Regiment -- of about 200 US soldiers. Massive artillery fire -- 90,000 US and 30,000 Chinese shells -- decimated both sides. K Company and then reinforcing units of about a hundred -- at terrible human cost -- ejected the attackers from the trenches in close combat, with only about 20 US soldiers walking off the mountain unscathed the next morning. But the Chinese, suffering 90% loses, would return again and again for eight subsequent nights, with more then 10,000 troops, no one knows for sure. The film depicts interviews with these aging American, South Korean.
