The Punch Below the Belt
Japanese Ruses, Deception Tactics, & Antipersonnel Measures
122 pages, 7 chapters
This un-politically correct WW2 cartoon book was
presented to US soldiers in an easy-to-understand style to
teach them valuable information about the very alien enemy
Japanese: their ruses, deception tactics, tricks,
psychology, antipersonnel measures, and commitment to
winning war at any cost. The original was part of a special
series distributed to and prepared especially for the
individual combat soldier. The tips in the guide were based
on "reasonably confirmed information" about the Japanese
and their tactics obtained up to July 1945.

The Punch Below the Belt, using common language,
real photographs, and cartoons; Japanese ruses,
deception tactics, ambushes, snipers, camouflage and
dummy installations, antipersonnel mines, and booby
traps are explained and comically rendered in order to save
US soldiers' lives in the Pacific Theater in WW2.
The ruses, deception tactics and antipersonnel measures depicted in this e-book have not gone out of style. Some of
those same tactics used by the Japanese in WW2 are being used by the muslims in the Middle East today.
QuikManeuvers.com thinks such documents are useful as an example for modern soldiers, even if current western
politically correct governments would never dream of issuing such a life-saving cartoon guide today.
