There's no point having a gun if you don't know how best to use it. And if you don't know how to hold a knife, you're better off not holding it at all. With the aid of superb line artworks, SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Armed Combat demonstrates to the reader how special forces soldiers are taught to excel in defending themselves against and using hand weapons, be they rifles, daggers, truncheons or throwing stars. The book explores the different uses of hand weapons, from pistols to semi-automatics to sniper's rifles, from flick knives to machetes, from stun grenades to CS gas, from knuckle-dusters to nunchaku sticks.
With tips and techniques from combat experts, the book explains which weapon to choose for given situations and how to use each weapon. With more than 300 easy-to-follow artworks and handy pull-out lists of key training tips, Armed Combat is the definitive guide for anyone wanting to be ready for anything.
