The PDF is the Marine Corps Publication FM 12-80 Kill or Get Killed, which is in its original form and entirety including figures.  It covers fighting techniques hand to hand, knives, pistols, long guns – basically eveything combatives.  It is basically a military reprint of Col Rex Applegate’s book Kill or get Killed,

FM 12-80 Kill or Get Killed was written in 1976 by Lieutenant Colonel Rex Applegate, USA (Ret), with the help of the Combat Section, Military Intelligence Training Center, Camp Ritchie, Maryland. At last there is one volume which speaks to the subjects of unarmed combat (offensive and defensive), combat use of weapons, disarming the enemy, handling of prisoners, the handling of mob/crowd disobedience, the use of chemicals in such situations, and how to estabish a professional riot control unit. This is an invaluable refaence for officers and SNCOs whose duties encompass these topics.

The detail, techniques, and training procedures presented will enhance small unit training, and every unit involved in the above activities should have
copies to which they may refer.

The idea behind this document is that the Marine Corps thought its Marines needed the information, but they did not want to make FM 12-80 Kill or Get Killed doctrine but they felt it was historical relevant and needed to be retained.

I still have a couple original copies of the FM 12-80 Kill or Get Killed document from my active duty days.
