A collection of survival tactics, covering every situation from the basic to the most extreme. Intended for instructor and student use in formal and USAF survival and survival continuation training, the handbook describes the various environmental conditions affecting human survival, and details the individual activities necessary to enable that survival. Taking as its premise the possibility that Air Force personnel might at any time be faced with an ejection, bale-out or crash landing, and thus find themselves in unfamiliar territory without long-term supplies, the handbook comprises a comprehensive general survival manual for military and civilian use alike. Encyclopaedic in its presentation of information, it covers subjects such as: map instruction; mountain walking techniques; fording streams; rope and knot usage; nutrition; fire-making; weather prediction; water travel; concealment techniques; and constructing suitable personal survival kits. There are illustrated figures to clarify the instructions.show more
