Drexel Biddle has contributed greatly. In this new edition, the basic text remains the same except for the changes necessitated in the use of the slash over the point system of fighting. We have attempted through more pho- tographs to better show these movements. The author now directs, in his extensive individual teaching if the bayonet and knife, to slash at the throat instead of thrust- yf with the point.

The slash is most effective used left to right, - directly following the left parry, right step and hand cut. Thi is important that we point out at this time that in combat, our rifle is loaded, shoot a man rather than engage him in yonet fight.

Unless you are under orders for a bayonet urge, the bullet is quicker and more accurate than the bayonet. Every Marine should become proficient in its use. Chris Gordon. Jared A. Thor Sheil.

DO OR DIE A Supplementary Manual on Individual Combat

Anthony Joseph Drexel Biddle Sr. An officer in the United States Marine Corps , Biddle was an expert in close-quarters fighting and the author of Do or Die: A Supplementary Manual on Individual Combat , a book on combat methods, including knives and empty-hand skills, training both the United States Marine Corps in two world wars and special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He was considered not just an expert in fighting, but also a pioneer of United States Marine Corps training in the bayonet and hand-to-hand combat. He based his style on fencing, though this approach was sometimes criticized as being unrealistic for military combat.
