Topics include: achieving silence in night movements, how to dress and develop your night vision, night demolition, silent movements. The original Japanese manual was used to train snipers, scouts, and saboteurs in WWII. In the 1960s and 1970s this became the basic night training manual for the Rhodesian and Australian SAS.
