    With the aid of superb line artworks, Unarmed Combat demonstrates to the reader how special forces soldiers are taught to excel in hand-to-hand fighting: how they maximise bodyweight, and the use of various strikes, throws, locks and constrictions to defeat opponents. It explains how different martial arts have been combined by military units to create hand-to-hand combat systems for defence against multiple assailants, for fighting on the ground, for dealing with edged and impact weapons, what works against attackers with firearms and – more importantly – what doesn’t. With tips and techniques from unarmed combat experts, the book is divided into two main sections. The first covers the mental preparation needed to be ready to defend yourself. The second covers the physical techniques needed to defend yourself, and if necessary, strike back to temporarily incapacitate your attacker and escape. With more than 300 easy-to-follow artworks and handy pull-out lists of key information, Unarmed Combat is the definitive guide for anyone wanting to be ready for anything - it could save your life.

  • The World's Elite Forces: Arms and Equipment (Greenhill Military Manuals)

    Detailing the guns, grenades, vehicles, aircraft, boats, sights, communications packages, body armour and other equipment of the world's special forces, this book not only gives in-depth technical specifications, but also gives information about where they are used and by which forces. Each entry is accompanied by technical drawings and photographs illustrating the items in action. Special forces have an allure unlike other branches of the military, and Will Fowler has done a thorough job of cataloguing the equipment that helps them carry out duties far beyond the call of ordinary units. Much of the hardware in the book has been adapted in close consultation with special forces for their use; for example the Milan 2 and 3 anti-tank guided weapons were designed on advice given by British Paras who used Milan 1 extensively in the Falklands war, and the M60 machine-gun has been endlessly improved since its first appearance in Vietnam where it was known as 'The Pig'. Other equipment such as the light strike vehicles and paratrooper's gravity blade knife was developed with a particular special forces task in mind.
