Porkchop hill is the name given to hill 255 ( because of it's shape); the site of bloody fighting between American (mostly) and Chinese Communist forces during the Korean War. Two battles took place: the first 23 march - 18 April, the second 6 - 11 July. the clashes were considered controversial because of the high numbers of casualties suffered (particularly the 2nd battle), the relative insignificance tactically of the hill and the fact that the armistice was signed less than 3 weeks after the secand battle. the 2nd battle was portrayed in the 1959 film 'PorkChop Hill', starring Gregory Peck.
