The Special Operations Executive (SOE) was the paramount Allied sabotage force of the Second World War. Its job - in Churchill's words - was to "set Europe ablaze" through the use of sabotage, insurrection and assassination. One of its "shining Stars" and "legends" was the close-combat pistol instructor, Colonel Hector Grant-Taylor. Grant-Taylor taught the commandos, secret agents and irregular soldiers the art of how to kill at close quarters. He taught them how to be ruthless, lethal and covert, and yet his own life was itself a mystery worthy of a John Buchan thriller novel. Misinformation, deception, bravery, murder, and ultimately redemption, all play a part in his story. At Close Quarters finally puts to rest the myths and legends that surrounded his life, and unravels the mysterious truth behind the enigma that was Colonel Hector Grant-Taylor!

For instructors of non-sport martial training, this Master's Manual details 340 duan chuan fa or "Short Fist" extremely aggressive and terminal close range fighting techniques, maneuvers and strategies against specific aggressions. As this is oriented toward seasoned instructors, no photos are included, nor are they necessary with the detailed written directions. This is not "self defense" material: that is not its genesis and it is patently inappropriate for those who do not train seriously.The techniques present combinations of throws, locks, breaks, holds, chops, kicks, punches and other strikes arranged in 11 levels of belt ranks up to 5th Black, as presently used in the Chuan Fa Kenpo system. Each technique will easily suggest 10 optional and equally effective maneuvers, i.e. these are "seeds" for dynamic, adaptive responses. There has been a deliberate attempt in the Manual's layout to allow room for you to leave tracks as you modify these seminal maneuvers.

This report describes the design of the Commander's Integrated Training Tool (CITT) for the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT), a system of armored vehicle manned module simulators and workstations that allows units to train collective armor and infantry tasks at the platoon through battalion task force level. CITT will allow commanders and other unit trainers to select, create, or modify structured training exercises for use when the unit trains using the CCTT. Although the project focused on the CITT design, it also included the development and refinement of a CITT prototype in standalone and distributed in tern et accessible versions. Additionally, the project included the development of an information overview presented in the form of videotapes and included in the CITT prototype, and the development of an implementation strategy and fielding plan. This report describes the activities involved in the development of the listed products along with the lessons learned during project completion.
