Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Advanced Threat Infrared Countermeasures to the XM320 grenade launcher, this comprehensive guide profiles nearly every weapon currently in use by the U.S. Army. In addition, it covers cutting-edge technology that will soon be employed by soldiers around the world. Missiles, small arms, biological detection systems, rockets, reconnaissance systems, radios, planes, bows and arrows (believe it or not)—you name it, this book has it. Also included is a thorough discussion of Future Combat Systems (FCS), the system of systems that, when fully operational, will provide the army and the joint force with an unprecedented capability to see the enemy, engage him on their terms, and defeat him on the twenty-first-century battlefield.

Book News Annotation:

Originally published in 1954, this handy 5x7" work is the taken directly from the Army's Field Manual No. 21-150. Illustrated with b&w photos and step-by-step instructions, the handbook describes techniques for various blow, holds, footwork, armwork, and other maneuvers to disable or kill an enemy in hand-to-hand fighting in various situations. Chapters progress from fundamentals of hand-to-hand combat through knife attack, silencing sentries, fall positions and throws, holds and escapes, disarming methods for different weapons, using available objects as weapons, and prisoner handling. A final chapter offers advice to instructors. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
