xiv, 316 pages. Index. Printed on glossy stock. Abundantly illustrated with black and white photos and diagrams. "War is a brutal business, whether it be war against an ememy or war against the criminal who strikes from within. And personal combat, at close quarters, is its most brutal aspect. Today [during the Korean War] we are fighting against an utterly ruthless Communist enemy, one who feels he must win at any cost, even at the cost of human decency. To survive, the soldier who meets such an enemy must know all the dirty tricks of close combat. The same principle applies when the enemy is domestic. This book is designed to meet this situation. It is an intensely practical and forthright description of the techniques of hand-to-hand combat." - Publisher's Foreword. Average wear to publisher's maroon cloth. Front hinge weak. Prior owner's name, bookplate and address label upon front endpaper. Name written atop title page. Dust jacket not included. A worthy early reference copy of this highly-regarded manual first printed during WWII and widely used in commando training.
