    I'm wringing my brain trying to remember this book. I want to say it was by "Wild" Bill Donovan or William Fairbairn or someone of that ilk. I even used to have it. Refresh my memory for me. I've googled for the last half hour and CANNOT figure it out! Ugh

    Kill or Get Killed!! We have a winner! Thank you. Now I'm gonna get a copy of it. The last copy I downloaded and printed a long time ago but it's long gone.
