Applegate's 'Combat Use of the Double-Edged Fighting Knife' is a simple manual of practical knife fighting techniques. These methods were taught to British SOE and American OSS agents during World War Two, and they are just as effective now as they were then. This little book covers the correct knife fighting stance and grip, attack methods, vital areas, how to practice, and how to choose your combat knife. If you want to learn simple, effective, and deadly knife fighting techniques this is the book for you.

The book is partly an overview of (very) basic knife fighting tactics and part an advertisement for the author's fighting knife. If you are looking for information on how to knife fight, this probably isn't the book for you. Interesting though, if nothing else then for academic study.
