Product Description In Battlefield situations where soldiers are forced to fight enemies in close contact, superior hand-to-hand combat skills can mean the difference not only between victory and defeat, but also between life and death. This authoritative manual addresses close-combat fundamentals from their history to their current role in modern warfare, and illustrates basic techniques and training methods with detailed photo sequences.
