These tunnels,which were first constructed in the 1940s,formed an underground city with many benefits for the Vietcong during the Vietnam war. The soldiers and villagers often hid in them during the war. Messages and supplies were usually delivered via the tunnels. Even underground hospitals were construsted to help the wounded. Large amounts of food and weapons were amassed in these secret places. The kitchens and wells could provide food for over ten thousand soldiers and villagers. These tunnels became their homes. During this time,schools were created in the tunnels,children were born in the hospitals,and entertainers would give performances for those living underground. The tunnels became a virtual city and whole populations of towns would live and hide in them while the American troops were marching above ground-these troops had no idea that whole towns existed below their feet. By the 1960s the tunnels were three levels deep and contained fully functioning societies in their depths.
The local villagers would dig out the tunnels by hand,making a progress of about one or two meters a day. They would transport the dirt into craters made by bombs the Americans had dropped close by.
Vents were installed in order to detect the activity of the Americans above them qand to allow the smoke to exit the tunnels when cooking. The villagers also built bamboo stake booby traps to maim or kill the American soldiers.
