From the Back Cover
Proficiency in hand-to-hand combat is one of the fundamental building blocks for training the modern soldier. Soldiers must be prepared to use different levels of force in an environment where conflict may change from low intensity to high intensity over a matter of hours; and many military operations, such as peacekeeping missions or noncombatant evacuation, may restrict the use of deadly weapons. Hand-to-hand combat training can save lives when unexpected confrontations occur.
Addressing both hand-to-hand combat and rifle-bayonet fighting, U.S. Army Hand-to-Hand Combat Handbook is illustrated with more than 350 photos and diagrams that cover:
* Basic Ground-Fighting Techniques
* Advanced Ground-Fighting Techniques
* Takedowns and Throws
* Handheld Weapons
* Standing Defense
* Group Tactics
