RARE book ''Get Tough'', Hand-to-hand fighting, as taught to the British Commandos by Major W.E, Fairbairn. Extremely nice OSS-MI6 related handbook. This is an edition published in 1943. The cool thing that the book is NICELY named on the first page to R. B. Ross, 2nd Platoon, B company, 129 Battaillon, 2nd Regiment, Tank Destroyer, with his service number! (ASN 35576782). So this would be a great item to research further! (I did some preliminary research, see attached screenshot).

Fairbairn was a British Royal Marine officer. He developed hand-to-hand combat methods for the allied special forces during World War II. He developed innovative pistol shooting and fighting techniques and the development of the Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife.

During WW2, he was recruited by the British Secret Service as an Army officer. Together with fellow close-combat instructor Sykes, Fairbairn was commissioned on the General List in 1941. He trained British, American and Canadian Commando and No. 2 Dutch Troop 10th Inter-Allied Commando forces, along with Ranger candidates in close-combat, pistol-shooting and knife-fighting techniques.

Fantastic WW2 hand-to-hand combat book for your US/UK WW2 collection!

NOTE: Stripes on the photo's are not on the actual book itself, due to window reflection!
