The concept of non-explosive man-traps is antique, but, in every sense, frighteningly efficient. Just the thought of falling into a pit with sharp stakes, being hit by an arrow, or being crushed by a falling trunk can make the most dauntless soldier be careful. Thus, the highest value of these traps lies in the unbelievable psychological effect on western soldiers. It did not take a long time until the Americans figured that enemy mines and booby traps cause fear amongst their soldiers, which ultimately stressed and demoralized them. In order to face this threat, a massive training program (mine awareness) was initiated for all soldiers. Adequate combat discipline and practice proved to be quite successful in avoiding many losses.
