The short attached article discusses how some units of the Australian Army used booby traps for offensive operations behind the Japanese lines. The location of these actions is not listed in the article, but it appears to be in the New Guinea theater.
This is a wartime article and is written to purposely vague to avoid providing technical and tactical information to the public. It was first printed in an Australian Army publication.
This version of the article was printed in the January 1945 edition of the USA professional military reference magazine ‘Military Review’.
