HAND-TO-HAND FIGHTING A System Of Personal Defence For The Soldier (1918)

A tough book on the art of hand to hand fighting in the trenches of the Great War. Demonstrating techniques utilised to “do away with the enemy”, many of which are barred in clean wrestling, the book includes good clear photographic illustrations presenting important attack methods including the “Hammer Lock”, “Kidney Kick”, “Head Twist”, “Knee Groin Kick”, and the “Knee Break”, all very important in a man to man, life or death encounter, when fighting in the mud of the trenches.
