Psychological Warfare, often called PSYWAR, is a term used “to denote any action which is practiced mainly by psychological methods with the aim of evoking a planned psychological reaction in other people.” What this means pretty much is as opposed to exchanging bullets to win a war, you use different forms of medium to crack the enemy’s minds to make them surrender.
Here are the bottom three tactics mentioned (you’ll have to watch the video for the top two):
You probably all know about the Trumpets of Jericho. These were sirens that were attached to the German Stuka dive bombers. The loud, spine chilling sound they made were simply aimed at killing the enemy’s morale and to scar them emotionally.
