Greek Fire's Modern Incarnation: Napalm - A Haunting Symbol of Warfare's Horror Napalm, the jellied gasoline used in incendiary bombs, first gained notoriety during the Greek Warfare in the 5th Century BCE. Fast forward to the mid-20th Century, and this terrifying weapon reemerged, leaving an indelible mark on history. In the French War in Vietnam, French aircraft dropped napalm on Phu Nho Quan, igniting a devastating inferno. But it was the image of a young Vietnamese girl, Kim Phuc, burned by a napalm bomb during the Vietnam War, that captured the world's attention. Her searing pain and agony became a symbol of the horrors of war. The Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star, a Cold War-era fighter jet, was armed with napalm bombs, capable of inflicting widespread destruction. Napalm bomb production reached new heights in the late 1950s, with factories churning out these incendiary weapons by the thousands. The use was not limited to Vietnam. In the Korean War, U.S. Air Force B-26 Invaders dropped napalm bombs on a railroad junction at Munchon, North Korea, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. The haunting images of napalm's devastation serve as a stark reminder of the horrors of war and the human cost of conflict. Despite its military utility, the use remains a deeply controversial and morally complex issue, leaving us to grapple with the consequences of our actions on the battlefield.
