Major_Punji_Trap.JPGPunji StakesOne of the nastiest booby traps in all of Vietnam was the punji stake trap. A hole in the ground was covered up to hide the sharply-pointed stakes pointing upward, usually with poison on the tips. The idea wasn't to kill US troops, but to take them out of the battle and to demoralize their comrades.
