The U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook was written for use in formal United States Air Force survival training courses. The U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook is the "bible" for pilots, soldiers and government contractors who want to stay alive in just about any situation.
Assuming, as the Air Force does, that flight personnel may be faced at any time with a bailout or crash landing in hostile territory without supplies, the advice here is practical yet also surprisingly readable and interesting. Detailing specific survival threats at sea, in the tropics, in the desert, in Arctic conditions, and the psychological perils of imprisonment and torture, this handbook is packed with fascinating and useful information. Extremely well written, thoroughly illustrated, and completely authoritative, this is an essential book for anyone, soldier or civilian, looking for knowledge that could prove to be the difference between life and death in a dangerous situation.
Included are over 1000 black and white illustrations useful in seeing exactly what the author is teaching. This is a trait that many survival manuals overlook. Even if you do not purchase this manual, all should have at least a basic knowledge of survival. Even if you are not looking at a long wilderness trip, today's society is fraught with peril both man made and that dealt by nature.
