Vietnam War Dictionary

Ho Chi Minh Trail

The Ho Chi Minh trail was a network of dirt roads and paths that stretched hundreds of miles from the mountains north of the DMZ down through Laos and Cambodia to various points in South Vietnam. Largely concealed by the jungle canopy, it was used by the North Vietnamese to infiltrate both troops and supplies throughout the war.
