Kill -- Or Get Killed
APPLEGATE, Lieutenant Colonel Rex
Offers the reader specific steps to defeat an opponent in mortal battle. He even shows us where to slice someone down the chest or across the throat. Don't miss his illustrative chapter on using a handgun. Prisoner handling is also demonstrated. From the Preface: "This book was first conceived and published early in World War II. If it had not been for World War II and the type of conflict experienced, the book would never have been written." Later: "Combat between individuals, as well as combat between armies, is won by offensive tactics. Indoctrination in the offensive is the basic principle on which all effective personal combat methods are built."
