War Department Field Manual FM 21-150, published June, 1942, 315 pages. Soft cover, extensively illustrated with photographs. A fascinating manual that covers all manner of possible situations, including how to defend yourself if an American officer attacks you with his Model 1902 Army officer sword. Apparently the War Department in 1942 still considered sword attacks to be a real possibility. Excellent condition.
