9780006531401: The SAS Survival Handbook

How to survive in the wild, in any climate, on land or at sea.

This is the original survival handbook, the international bestseller which in the decade since it was published has been often imitated but never bettered.

This book is based on the training techniques of the Special Air Service, the world’s most famous elite fighting force, and shows how to survive outdoors, on land or at sea, in any weather, in any part of the world.

From making a pocket survival kit to knowing how to obtain safe drinking water, the SAS’s Chief Survival Instructor progresses through a whole range of survival techniques and situations. From obtaining food, building a camp and administering emergency first aid to navigating your way to safety and dealing with natural disasters, THE SAS SURVIVAL HANDBOOK could actually save your life.
