For most of the photographs Dempsey is fully clothed but the "enemy" is nearly nude, in a pair of briefs and combat boots. (Maybe there was something about ememy commandos that we were never told.) Anyway, the former champ explains all about touch guy fighting, using as the idea that the best way to handle a man who raises his arm against you is to break it off and beat him with it. Great stuff from the middle of WWII. ; B&W Photographs; 12mo 7" - 7˝" tall; 127 pages
