Deadly Traps

Also on display were a variety of deadly traps that were used in the war. Often poison was applied to the hooked spikes lining the traps. This one really made you watch where you were walking along the trail. 

Here the guide is demonstrating what would happen if you stepped on this trap. Yep, a spike right through your foot. Ouch!

It was explained to us that this was one was designed especially to get you where it counts, your knees, inner organs and the baby maker.

  1. Firstly, I would gladly give my knees rather than sacrifice my baby maker. Let's be reasonable, here.

    Secondly, these traps remind me of an episode of Lassie when Mrs. Lassie or Lassie's mom or whomever got suck in a bear trap. It really looked like it smarted!
