The Cu Chi Tunnels are part of a much more extensive network of tunnels that underlie much of the country
During times of heavy bombings, Viet Cong soldiers were forced to stay underground in the tunnels for days at a time
The tunnels were also used as hospitals, food stores, weapon caches, supply routes and communications channels
Underground theatres kept people entertained with song, dance and story-telling performances
It took 25 years to dig the whole network of tunnels that is underneath the Cu Chi region, all done by hand
Large-scale ground operations including thousands and thousands of US and Australian troops failed to locate any trace of the tunnels
The tunnels were so low and narrow that soldiers could only crawl through on their stomachs
