Perrigard was a staff surgeon at mcGill university, his medical background shows in the writing of this book. Covers muscle memory, visualisation, and probably the best description of use of the ax hand of any book out there.
Your Answer to Invasion by James Hipkiss. Nice book produced for the home guard. interestingly, as almost all WWII combatives instructors had a judo background, this is one of very few books that emphasises the importance of balance.
hand to hand combat (the V5 manual) wonderful book ,all kinds of nasty techniques, recently reprinted by Paladin. Paladin has also re printed the boxing and wrestling manuals from this series, well worth getting.
Self defense by Wesley Brown. Wesley Brown was one the authors of the V5 manual refereced above(with Joe Begalia)
Hands Off! by W.e. Fairbairn. Again, recently reprinted by Paladin. best description of chin jab in any of Fairbairn's book, great stick work drill using an umbrella, and pictures of Fairbairn with his daughter Dorothea.
This is off the top of my head. Will check my booksheleves for more.

How would you rate them, including "KOGK" and "Get Tough" on a list starting with best?
