this book teaches you everything you need to know when you're in a survival situation, and it's not just for the military but for campers and hikers too.

This handbook is guidelines to survival. It was distributed to the U.S. Military and U.S. Special Forces to help teach them how to get food, find and purify water, build shelter, how to build a fire, how to start a fire, etc. But this book is not just for the military, it is also a great help with campers hikers, anglers, hunters, fishermen, and ayone who enjoys the outdoors.
