How American Troops in WWII Learned how to Fight Dirty and win

While fighting the Japanese during World War II, the Americans believed their enemies were skilled in martial arts and guarded cultural fighting styles. The military then sought help from several martial artists such as boxers, wrestlers, and even knife-fighters, to teach hand-to-hand combat to American soldiers.

Still, there was one eccentric personality that stood out among them: François D'Eliscu. Both a piercing intellectual and a fierce warrior, D'Eliscu's mentality changed the way soldiers trained in the US. He once wrote:

"Our enemies have been toughened, seasoned, and experienced to jungle fighting for a long time. They have been preparing for war - we have been enjoying a Utopian peace of mind. [...] The French learned this too late."
