Booby traps are often vicious devices with the sole intention of killing or maiming their victim. They are usually inexpensive, simple to make, and wreak havoc amongst enemy forces, and as such have been widely used in wars and guerrilla campaigns all over the world.
Their indiscriminate nature accompanied by the horrific injuries they can inflict, have demoralised and spread fear amongst everyone unfortunate enough to encounter them. Here are my choices for 5 of the deadliest booby traps ever created.
5. Punji Traps
4. The Cemetery Gun
3. WW2 Anti Officer Bombs
2. Project Eldest Son
1. Exploding Toys (IED)
