system stretched from the outskirts of Saigon all
the way to the Cambodian border of over 250 kilometers
of tunnels. The tunnel system, built over 25 years
starting in the 1940s, let the Viet Minh
and, later, the Viet Cong, control a huge rural area.
It was an underground city with living areas, kitchens,
storage, weapons factories, field hospitals, command
centers. In places, it was several stories
deep and housed up to 10,000 people who virtually lived
underground for years.... getting married, giving
birth,going to school. The ground here is hard clay,
which made this whole thing possible. But even so,
the planning and construction was incredible.
People dug all this with hand tools, filling reed
baskets and dumping the dirt into bomb craters.
They installed large vents so they could hear
approaching helicopters, smaller vents for air and
baffled vents to dissipate cooking smoke. There
were also hidden trap doors and gruesomely
effective bamboo-stake booby traps. Today, the trees and
bushes have grown back. And since 1988, two
sections of tunnels have been open for visitors.
