About Get Tough!
Get Tough! is a WWII manual for Allied Special Forces commandos to learn hand-to-hand fighting techniques. Developed by Major W. E. Fairbairn (of the legendary Sykes-Fairbairn dagger), the book “developed a system that stopped the Shanghai terrorists in their tracks, demoralised the Nazis, and probably proved a decisive factor in the success of Allied Special Forces in World War II.”
