But you don't have to be a soldier to benefit from all the vital information its field guide has to offer.

A wealth of life-saving information includes proven tactics for finding potable water, getting food from plants and wildlife, creating shelter, building a fire, using the sun and stars to establish directions, identifying poisonous snakes and insects, handling medical emergencies, and much more.
