    "Get Tough!" - A self defence/fighting manual from WWII

    *Goddamit- Self Defense. Check spelling twice when you're tired*

    I didn't find much information about this book, but you can read it here:

    Interesting, and it has lots of pictures!

    They don't make those anymore. (Or do they?!)

    I like how they have the back breaker as a throw. I wonder how hard it would be to actually break someones spine with that one.

      I find the pictures quite hilarious. Its like those drawings on airplanes that show you what to do when the plane crashes in the middle of the ocean, only they're wearing American/British/German uniforms, and they're killing each other!
      They should put those in airplanes- What to do if terrorists try to hijack your plane...

          Fairbairn?

          Now HE'S never been discussed in Bullshido before.

          If only we had a search function...

            I actually did search "Get Tough" before posting this thread and found nothing.

                    What I really want to see a scan of is the German counter-manual, "Against the English Gangster Methods", or something like that.

                        All of the classic works by him have been reprinted by Palidan Press.

                        They are very good and worth looking at. Same with "The Close combat files of Col. Rex Applegate.

                          "Get Tough" is a must have. So is "KOGK". Styer's "Cold Steel" is my favorite.

                            DON'T MENTION THE WAR!!! (I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it . . .)

                              This is why I stopped taking the train. Too many Nazis.
