Hand to Hand Combat (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Francois d'Eliscu taught thousands of U.S. Army Rangers how to fight down and dirty in World War II.

d'Eliscu doesn't get the press that Fairbairn and Applegate do, but he did a commendable job writing this book. It is basic, meant for training raw recruits

in a short amount of time before sending them to the front, but simple is good when you are in combat, as most combative experts will tell you.

D'Eliscu wrote this manual when in France in 1944 organising training at the officers' candidate school at Fontainebleau. Hand to Hand Combat outlined his techniques for hip throws, joint locks, eye-gouging finger strikes, shin kicks, grappling on the ground, and defensive tactics against knife attacks. "Practice for speed and perfection," d'Eliscu admonishes in it.
