A comprehensive manual of proven wilderness survival tactics for every situation. Written for use in formal United States Air Force survival training courses, the U.S. Air Force Survival Handbook is the bible for pilots who want to stay alive-no matter what. 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 superlatively practical, but 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 replete with fascinating and useful (if unsettling) information. Precisely written, profusely 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. 1000 black-and-white illustrations
