Great to see the Punji Trap reviewed in the 10th anniversary edition of Lotus Magazine where Martin Bradley notes: “.. an intriguing account filling various history gaps in protracted military operations in Southeast Asia.”

Author Luke Hunt.
A chopper pilot snapped this mid-flight somewhere in Southeast Asia. He also said it was a good read. Many thanks, Luke.
Long before arriving in Cambodia, I was reading whatever I could find from the journalist Luke Hunt, the Southeast Asian Correspondent and author who has covered so many of the challenging issues and events in the area. Hailing from Australia, Hunt has been frequently living in Cambodia since 2000. He began his Khmer encounters in the early 1990s as a reporter in Saigon following the Khmer Rouge’s kidnapping and murder of three Western backpackers.
