Exploded ordnances became fragments scattered everywhere. Unexploded ordnances remained untouched and hidden, ready to explode. When World War II had finished, the French Indochina Wars came as a replacement during the 1950's. More bombs were dropped, more hand grenades were thrown, and more bullets were fired. The most damaging war of all was the war between 1970 and 1975 when 539,129 tons of air-to-ground bombs were dropped on Cambodia. The legacy of this activity is still evident today as it is estimated there are thousands of unexploded bombs still lying hidden underground.
