FM21-20 Physical Fitness Training (1946)

This is the US Army's manual on physical fitness training. Beginning on p197, we see an section on wrestling, hand to hand training, and boxing.

The wrestling section definitely tries to channel the feel of old Greek vases, I feel.

Cheers!

When I was a fighting-man, the kettle-drums they beat,
The people scattered gold-dust before my horses feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.

Fixed the Google Drive viewing link; sorry about the jacked up permissions!

Remarkably low guard in boxing ! No gloves, so old-timey bare-knuckle stuff (with open palm blocks ??)
