The Second World War prompted the recruitment and training of British soldiers on a scale never seen since. Physical training, sports & recreational games and bayonet fighting training all fell under the instruction of what became the Army Physical Training Corps in 1940, a unit that had already proved vital in creating and maintaining fitness and battle-readiness among recruits in the First World War. The training & equipment manual, books, photographs and inspirational lectures collected in this publication provide an insight into how the Physical Training Instructor kept the British soldier Fighting Fit.
