“Destroy the Enemy in Hand-to-Hand Combat” was the official Red Army close combat manual during the Second World War.
Published in 1941, this would have been the very manual used to train the troops that fought and defeated the Nazis at Stalingrad and in Berlin, in fierce close-quarter combat.
Translated into English by professional translator Boris Karpa.
