This is the field manual issued by the United States Army to its soldiers. As a soldier, you can be sent to any area of the world at a moment's notice. It may be in a temperate, tropical, arctic or sub-arctic region. You might expect to have your personal equipment and your unit or other members of your unit with you wherever you go, but there is no guarantee that this will be so. You could find yourself alone in a remote area - possibly enemy territory - with little or no personal gear. This survival handbook provides information and describes the basic techniques to enable you to survive and return alive should you find yourself in such a situation. The handbook addresses and illustrates a wide array of topics, including: the will to survive; survival planning; survival medicine, weapons and tools; water procurement; wild plants for food; shelter; fire-building; water crossings; direction finding; signalling; desert survival; tropical survival; arctic and sub-arctic survival; sea survival; poisonous snakes; knots; climate; weather; and more.show more
