    Being an infantryman during the Battle of the Somme would probably be the worst job military in history. You were subjected to months of waiting in freezing conditions, up to your ankles in icy water, under constant shelling, amid the stench of rotting corpses, all in a bleak and hellish wasteland. If you weren't sniped, shelled, gassed or crushed by a tank, you could look forward to literally drowning in mud or being torn apart by barbed wire.Brutal doesn't even come close to describing it.

    Im glad I grew up in peace, so that I can waste my life with YouTube and not with war

  • Click Bait

    My grandpa died in a concentration camp, poor fella fell out of the guard tower.

  • Wuanslm

    I find it funny how after trying to, flood, bomb and gas the vietcong tunnels in the end the best solution the entire military might of the US could muster was just to send in a bunch of half naked dudes with pistols to clear them out one by one.

  • Can't See Me.

    Pfft. This is nothing. I saw my wife get shot in a frozen pod and get my baby ripped from her literal cold dead hands. Not to mention tracking across a radiated wasteland and killing radiated moles with nothing but my bare hands.

  • Evan Dotterer

    Honestly just being a Japanese soldier during WW2 should be on the list... If you look at the mortality rate of the island defenders during the Pacific campaign it was a literal death sentence.

  • Sweetlemonade97

    War is worse than hell. Everyone in hell deserves to be there. Not everyone in war is able to choose wether they’ll end up in it, or not.

  • DaLagga

    Don't forget guys, it's women who have historically been the most oppressed. Even today, they have to deal with the horrors of slightly chilly office buildings as a result of patriarchal temperature norms!

  • WV Redneck

    I knew an old man named Max that was a tunnel rat in Vietnam.He used to tell some pretty crazy stories.He had a rifle sling made from the ears of the Vietcong he had killed.

    I was USMC 1965 - 1969 2/1 MOS 5812 Scout Tracker so I had alot of encounters with spider holes , I refused to send my K 9 and instead we called in for Foo Gas , a highly successful weapon , we poured 40 gallon drums of Foo Gas into every rabbit hole after securing the area and light em up , within 90 seconds many more undiscovered spider holes would start blowing smoke , durring our 6 days of round the clock fighting with the NVA 2nd DIV we cooked an entire tunnel network with Foo Gas and the results became my nightmare , after dumping 300 gallons of Foo Gas into the spider holes and lighting it up we had 3 flaming NVA leap out of a spider hole covered in flames from head to toe , after a week of non stop artillery ringing in our ears we we're numb and several Marines argued to allow the flaming NVA to burn to death ,so we watched them collapse and die , I hadn't noticed with all the commotion that my K 9 had alerted on a spider hole we hadn't discovered so I approached the hole and was going to toss my Willie Pete in until i peered inside ,there was an NVA covered in thick black soot so badly his face looked like Al Joleson black face make up with his arms outstretched asking for help ,I slung my weapon and yanked his ass out of the hole and into a clearing ,his legs were smoking so bad we thought he was still covered in Foo Gas and burning making popping sounds ,after the smoke cleared we could see the cooked meat on his legs bursting out streams of bright yellow fat , he kept saying " Oh Me Now " over and over again ,nobody knew wtf he was saying until it hit me he was in severe shock and pleading for me to Kill Me Now , I flipped the toggle on my weapon and put a burst into his chest at point blank but he had so much adrenaline pumping he didn't die ,I flipped the toggle back and put a single round thru his head and gave him peace ,afterwards an ARVN officer came and pissed on the burned up VC I had killed , everybody looked at each other and silently agreed that ARVN bastard had crossed a line and wasn't making it back to camp , he didn't make it back to camp either .

    Male privilege in a nutshell.

  • Alexander Wilhelm Benedictus

    There's a rather long movie Das Boot, which not only has an amazing soundtrack, but also tells a story of one german submarine and it's crew near the end of WW2. I recommend that movie to anyone interested.

  • StopFear

    French Judge: send him to the galleys!Prisoner: Galleys!! Please, gallows! Not galleys!

  • Spaced Invader

    Flamethrowers dont just explode when the tank is shot. Thats a myth perpetuated by Film.

  • Video Ninja

    Grandpa was a tunnel rat. Great man. Not so thin anymore hahaha but he's got some crazy stories.

  • fleamarketmutt

    All wars are bankers' wars.

  • paulsdrc

    Door gunner in Vietnam, life expectancy 3 missions.

  • Hamburglar v1

    My uncle was a tunnel rat, and a sole survivor of his platoon. Terrible war

  • Zaween Exists

    What if you would scream in tunnels "FREE RICE"

  • JayBaddAssCutler

    What about the poor bastsrd who's job is to lay on the barbed wire while his comrades run over him

  • Penitten

    3:26 "usually with his fleshlight off"

  • Fiasco

    I think Ball Turret Gunner from WW2 deserves an honorable mention. Suspended from the bottom of a bomber in a glass bubble manning a machine gun. Practically no protection from flak or enemy fighters. Extremely high mortality rate. It was considered by many to be the worst possible occupation in WW2.

  • Danny Heywood

    'The Enemy might not take to kindly to the fact you just tried to set him on fire'haha!''Can you please stop that?! It's very uncomfortable and frankly I find it to be bad manners''

  • lunx BaSick

    3:15 will have a bayonet, pistol, and a fleshlight....Doesn’t sound bad at all

  • Rod Doney

    Surprised they didn't eat the dogs when they were sent in to the tunnels.

  • Chris Long

    My father-in-law was a TC on a Sherman tank in Guam with the Marines. He used to tell me about the nutjobs driving the flamethrower tanks! He said they were absolute lunatics, with napalm or whatever leaking all over the vehicle! You could smell them, he'd say!It always interested me that he never talked details of his wartime experience to anyone but me. Not even his wife or kids... I think it irritates them a bit but oh well. They did get to go with him for the 60th(?) anniversary of the Guam invasion and he showed them where he remembered landing etc, but never the combat details! I met my wife, his daughter, right after I got out of the Army, and I think that might be why.What he told me, were the gruesome first-hand details, and boy, you better believe they were frightening! Coming from one who never exaggerated a thing in his life! He was the most composed person I ever met and I'm beyond sad that he's checked out now! Sah-lute!!He was cool, man... just cool. I miss you, George!

  • Jason Blaha's Strength and Fitness

    I was a tunnel rat in Nam until I got so fat that I got stuck in one. I ended up blocking the air supply to the tunnel and it killed everyone inside. Got a medal of honor for it.

  • Beerus

    i just got an idea for a horror movie about the Tunnel Rats!A Group of battle hardened Tunnel Rats who had success in every mission they took find a large series of Tunnels. they explore the tunnel and find many booby-traps....traps that would not only kill a human but completely destroy it,soon after they encounter some Vietnamese who seem to be hiding and scared shitless but they still fought them anyway. they won the battle and suffered some injuries... Now after fulfilling their mission it is time to find a way out...as they are about to do a dying Vietnamese soldier mumble something and blow up the small room causing the group to run and the tunnel to crumble as they fell down even further...as they gain their senses they realize they fell under another series of tunnels...but these tunnels are not like the rest...they are not man made but rather dug by an animal or something...as a growl echos further...the group is left in battle position wondering what the fuck was that.in the end only one left....will he/she survive or will they suffer the same fate as his/her comrades.

  • Daniel Lewis

    The dogs ended up as soup.

  • Benjamin Timms

    why does his voice sound a bit like male Siri, its actually triggering.

  • Anthony Abraham

    how did kamikaze pilots not make this list?

  • Robert Weatherby

    the "not one step back" order did not ban retreating. it was targeted at officers that would call for a retreat with out being given orders to do so. an army could still retreat but had to be given orders from higher to do so.

  • Ulvi Badalov

    Radioman. Any army, any war

  • Burntburgers

  • Howard Lovecraft

    I was the guy in my unit responsible for finding something good on TV in the breakroom. I still wake up in a cold sweat clutching a remote control that isnt there.

  • Kevin Johnson

    Didn't Hillary Clinton say women have always been the primary victims of war?

  • Phil Scoles

    YouTube narrators need to learn how to pronounce difficult words better. This guys version of Byzantine was atrocious.

  • Cortarna

    U-boats were more boat than submarine. Although they were capable of diving, they spent most of their time on the water surface, access to the outside world/air. Crampt, yes, though they didn't go "weeks without capturing a glimpse of the sky."

  • deliciousmorton

    The NVA and the Vietcong were courageous. They drove out not one, but two occupations in less than two decades.

  • John Doe

    If you were a tunnel rat that 1911 was your best friend.

  • Marcelo Rojas

    - Name one character who could beat Captain America, I'll wait- Captain Vietnam

  • ThePsychodad69

    Got you beat, I met a guy that was on ground zero, 14hrs after the surrender of Japan as part of a exploratory unit. Amazingly after all that devastation, the radiation sickness, cancer, VA issues, he blamed the Jews.

  • Eye Patch Guy

    There’s the Ball Turrent Gunners of WW2 Bombers. In fact, I think that Charles Bronson was a part of a bomber that ran 26 missions, a position with a 21% survival rate.

  • GI Loli

    Bye zan tines? It’s pronounced bizanteen (Byzantine)

  • AtomicSpoon

    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, "You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done." - George Carlin

  • Hanz Krupps

    And I thought dealing with assholes at my job was a pain. 😆

  • Ken Nagle

    Is it just me or should Hollywood make a movie about tunnel rats??! Like that would be a great movie

  • E-A.

    Haha, you don't know what it is to be an Emperial guardsmen. Every inhale is an agony, every exhale is an bitter regret of existence.But the Emperor, the Emperor sees and protects all.

  • Brian Hays

    One of the sweetest vets I take care of was a Marine tunnel rat in Vietnam Nam. Goes around and tells high school students what it was really like. But his biggest beef with the movies was he says it always shows them going into the tunnels with the gun drawn. He says that is the stupidest thing ever. If you shoot then you just let everyone know where you are. If they shoot at you, different story. Then he said the thing that really got me. You go in with your knife. Everyone I killed was hand to hand with my knife. My nurse who was also infantry in Iraq and Afghanistan and myself just looked at each other like.....DAMN. Some of the bad ass guys I have met.

  • Dovahsaurus PaleoKnight

    0:50 well people who say that the US was pathetic for not winning the war against Vietcong have never heard of these tunnels

  • Really Happenings

    So basically fighting for survival while trapped in cold wet dark cramped spaces

  • David Lamers

    Not even going to bother to watch it's no matter what being a medic it Targets on your back

  • AdonisplayZ KYT

    We would have won the Vietnam war if it wasn’t run by the congress and politicians and they would let the experienced generals have control over it smh

  • sliced banana

    Call of duty intensifies

  • Twelve BangBang

    Shooting a flame thrower did not cause it to burst into flames. typically, you'd just leak fluid all over the place. God how the movie industry has bastardized history.

  • AGENT Spider

    Kamikaze pilot in japanese army?

  • HoboTango

    Tunnel Rats were Engineers ( Sappers) and the reason why their survival rate is low is mostly because they died on above ground by mines. Clearing M-16 mines could kill and disabled about 20 of them with just one mine.

  • Jaxon Morrison

    When the trees start speaking Vietnamese

  • brian anderson

    A bomb diffuser is a rough job. Try disarming a bomb from another country where the wiring is unique

  • Sergey Berezin

    I’ve heard stories of Red Army penal company officer. And although there was a bad attitude of some soviet generals to the “shtrafniki” (that’s russian name of penal battallion soldiers), mostly the last ones were just used on the edge of the attack, first men in battle. And as far, as members of those units were experienced soldiers, no commander wanted to sacrifice such a valuable unit in a suicidal attack due to the total lack of forces after the disasters of 1941-1942. I mean that yeah, of course, some generals were (are) morons, but they were so to mostly all of the troops, not just the penal ones.Soviet penal batallions were organized in a way, that after 6 months of serving there soldiers were deployed back to there original units and returned their ranks, cause they were military proffecionals (very valuable). About 50-60% of penal batallions members were given back their posts after 6 months of service in a penal batallion. That might seem not much for a person not knowing average death percentage on eastern frontiere in Red Army. And NKVD officer were not put in charge of such units. Such officers were doing the papework of such units, controlling the situation about rotating the troops, mb. But commanding officers were from army. NKVD was a commissariat of “inner cases”, somehow like ministry of justice, so their officers just did not know some basic army officer staff. So NKVD leutenant commanding a penal platoon during attack, let’s say, operation “Bagration”, would be a mess similar to the one if you imagine an FBI agent commanding a marine unit in the first wave on Peleliu (nonsense). So the field commanders of such penal units were ordinar Red Army officers. Good voice though))

  • Jef Rey

    You missed Forward Observers which have a life expectancy around 14 seconds in a conventional war.

  • Aaron Bradley

    This is one of the best videos on YouTube I come back to it a lot. It's pretty amazing thinking about what any of these people had to go through. I mean I would well you got to look at the thing holistically I mean I'd rather die getting blown to bits on the Frontline then getting bit by a poisonous snake and scared to death left to die in a dark tunnel I mean that some kind of nightmare but you look at the penal battalions and figure how they must have been treated before they went into war it's just it's pretty crazy

  • Razvratnik

    Penal battalion: If you're not dying, you're not trying.

  • Porkchop Sandwiches

    They used to transport Mercury up to 100 tons in the U boats as it was an important expensive and rare commodity back then. Which largely contributed to the oceans poisoning.

  • nathan smiddy

    U boats had to be one of the only types I think was the worst in both wars.

  • lugnut master

    Reported site for hateful, abusive and harmful Political advertising by PragerU

  • Ryan OCal

    It's hard to imagine such barbarity exhisted a mere 80 years ago. There are currently politicians in the US that are promoting communist Stahlin ideas because they have only ever experienced peace and a volunteer military. These politicians have zero knowledge or interest in learning about the politics of the recent past. Communists planted the seeds for fools to be attracted to. There have been many mistakes made by all people but socialism only works morally & equitably for small groups like families. The United Soviet Socialist republic murdered 50 million+ people outside of war. Their war Barbary killed the majority of ww2 dead.
