During World War I these bayonet techniques were supplemented with unarmed combat techniques, which often proved useful in trench warfare. Between the world wars , Colonel Anthony J. Biddle began the creation of standardized bayonet and close combat techniques based on boxing , wrestling , savate and fencing. Also during this period, Captains Wallace M. Greene and Samuel B. Miller was ordered to develop a new curriculum that a —or a —pound Marine could use to quickly kill the enemy.

Background[ edit ] Perhaps the earliest lineal predecessor of the modern Marine Corps was the creation and evolution of marines dating back to the European naval wars, during the Second Hundred Years' War — of the 17th and 18th century, particularly the Second Anglo-Dutch War — The European powers all contended with each other in naval power. As France and the Netherlands were opting to train seamen for infantry combat, England instead in formed a special regiment, the Duke of York and Albany's Maritime Regiment of Foot , also known as the "Lord High Admiral's Regiment",  the progenitors of the modern Royal Marines. This maritime infantry regiment was directed to be under the complete control of the Admiralty. Two years later, two new regiments were formed, the 1st and 2nd Regiment of [Royal] Marines, their functions assumed the same roles as the subsequent marine regiments in the past; however the ensuing wars of the Second Hundred Years' War, like the Royal Navy, the marine regiment would quickly dissolve only to be reassembled during the events of war.
