During the Vietnam war the Cu Chi Tunnel system became legendary as it was used by the Viet Cong (VC) to gain control of a large area in the south. The tunnel system enabled the VC to even enter the US military base at Dong Du to steal weapons, food and ammunition and to shoot soldiers. The tunnels were constructed over many years beginning in 1940 and became a very effective tool for insurgency. The hard red earth around Cu Chi was ideal for tunnel construction.
