Crowd and Riot Control Including: Close-Combat Techniques for Military and Police (An Extensive Revision of Kill or Get Killed, with much new Material added)

By Applegate, Colonel Rex

USA: Stackpole Books. Hardcover. B00CHASTJU 528 pages. Index. Generously illustrated with black and white photos and diagrams. This book is an expansion and revision of 'Kill Or Get Killed." Intended to "make available to civil and military law enforcement agencies the most up-to-date methods of handling crowd and riot situations. Its scope ranges from the friendly persuasion of a peaceful crowd to the application of varying degrees of force when lesser means are inadequate to insure control, even to the use of ball ammunition in an all-out riot. Crowds are analyzed as well as mobs, and particularly the transition from crowd to mob. An effort is made to distinguish between the actions that may be expected from a professionally led and agitated mob and those of a spontaneous mob. To our knowledge, there is probably nobody better qualified than Colonel Applegate to describe these techniques" - Publisher's Foreword. Unmarked with average wear to publisher's illustrated grey cloth. Binding intact. Dust jacket not included. A sound vintage copy of this excellent reference. . Good. 1964. Sixth Edition.
