Booby Traps

The Vietnam War has been one of the ugliest and nastiest wars ever fought. Beginning in early parts of the 60’s, it extended until President Nixon pulled the plug in the 70’s. With public opinion sharply divided, it created confrontations between Americans all over the country. Even our troops, perhaps especially our troops, hated fighting such a nasty conflict. It’s the conflict that has created the greatest emotional and psychological damage of them all.

Political reasons and considerations aside, one of reasons for such strong emotions were the brutal tactics used during combat. Many of the booby traps were seen as inhumane. This video will show you the most gruesome and fearsome traps used in the conflict.
