This is one of the best combative manuals from World War 2, developed by the US Navy V-Five Staff, that included the renowned American wrestler Wesley Brown. It is then not especially surprising that wrestling skills predominate in this manual, and form the base skill-set for this combative system. From opening gambits and fundamental combative skills, such as eye-gouging and groin kicks, to advanced sentry removal techniques and disarms, this wrestling legacy makes it unlike other hand-to-hand manuals that use Karate or jujitsu as the base fighting form.

Well illustrated with contemporary photographs, scenarios are covered for every conceivable attack; as well as fighting from the ground against a standing combatant, the correct approaches for Wire Strangle, Club and Knives also receive coverage. This is an excellent addition for the modern military combative practitioner or academic study and application.
