VERY 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 early edition published in 1943. Additional bonus is the rare dust cover which is still included with the book and which is complete, including the inner panels.
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.
