The name of a anti-infantry weapon...? Answered

I remember reading some time ago about metal spikes that were dropped from planes in one of the major wars(Korean, Vietnam, something like that). I think they were about a foot long maybe, and they were mean as anti-infantry, seeing as they could pierce through helmets easily.
The annoying thing about this is that I can't even remember if this is a real or fictional weapon.
