From the UK Daily: An Special Air Service (SAS)  soldier has drowned an ISIS fighter in a puddle during a tense battle to the death.
The troops were surrounded by approximately 50 ISIS militants yesterday close to Mosul in Northern Iraq as they had just withdrawn from an intelligence gathering mission, according to the Daily Star
In the ambush, soldiers fatally shot several militants before their ammunition ran out and they were forced to use their guns as battering rams, knives, wit and brute strength to defeat the enemy.  
One man even drowned an ISIS fighter in a puddle before picking up a stone which he smashed into another man's face. 
Sources told the Daily Star that they were convinced they were going to die in the battle, so they chose to 'go out fighting' in the hope that they would kill as many ISIS fighters as possible before they died. 
One source told The Daily Star: 'The SAS unit was trapped in a small river bed. They did a quick ammo check and realised they had less that 10 bullets left between them.
'They knew that if they were captured they would be tortured and decapitated.
Rather than die on their knees, they went for a soldier's death and charged the IS fighters who were moving along the river bed. They were screaming and swearing as they set about the terrorists.' 
The soldiers then used everything at their disposal in the desperate fight for their lives.
Assuming this hasn't been embellished, that is one heck of a way to fight.  How it must have been hell.
