House to House Fighting


Do you know that house-to-house fighting is the finest sport on earth?
Do you know that is it just the sort of close-quarter scrapping the British excel in?
Do you know that once you get going you will love it?
Do you want to come with me down our street and play hell with some bloody Huns?
You do?
Right, we’ll carry on!

House to House Fighting is one of a series of training books written in 1942 by Colonel G. A. Wade for the newly-recruited Home Guard. This reproduction from the Royal Armouries’ archive shows how Second World War trainees learnt to defend themselves amidst the threat of enemy invasion.

Colonel G. A. Wade was a British soldier and author who wrote a series of training manuals for the British Home Guard in the expectation of a German invasion. The series was originally published by Gale & Polden.
