Boobytraps: FM 5-31 is the official Department of the Army field manual originally published in 1965 during the height of the Vietnam War. We have re-formatted and re-published this book for today’s audience. This heavily illustrated book includes the following subjects:
- Characteristics of Boobytraps
- Use of Boobytraps
- Boobytrapping Equipment
- Construction Techniques
- Miscellaneous Boobytraps
- Boobytrap Detection and Removal
This book provides an interesting look into what soldiers needed to know during the 1960s, when the threat of boobytraps was a real and dangerous issue. They had to both set boobytraps and know where to find them. Their lives depended on it.
