Overview

Perfect the skills of mental toughness and endurance used by the Special Air Service -- England's equivalent of the United States Special Forces. The SAS Mental Endurance Handbook uncovers the secrets of these toughest-of-the-tough combat soldiers. It is an indispensable guide to mastering your mind whether facing the prospect of death in combat or trying to stay alive while evading pursuers. Key topics examined in the book include: the will to survive, enduring the stress of battle, recruitment and training, intelligence and concentration, building a team mind, leadership, battle tactics, detention, escape and survival, maintaining morale and effectiveness, diplomacy, and future conflicts. The book also contains details of a number of military training programs and their means of assessing a candidate's fitness for the arduous life of a combat soldier and their strategies for overcoming factors that can wear down tolerance of stress and hardship. Illustrated throughout with more than 150 drawings that provide step-by-step guidance, The SAS Mental Endurance Handbook explains everything you need to know about just what makes a successful fighter. Military historian and martial arts expert Chris McNab has written and edited many books detailing the experiences of soldiers on the battlefield, including The Military Handbook of Unarmed Combat. His ongoing research projects include the martial cultures of the ancient Far East and the modern tactics of low-intensity warfare. He lives in England.

I picked this book up thinking, 'just another book on the military'. Wrong. This book is full of incredible information on not just mindset, but also on military techniques. I consider myself knowledgeable, but I learned new things on every page. If you are interested in military techniques or martial arts mindset, or military mindset, get this book !
