The definitive guide to survival! Mar 27, 2008
This is THE definitive guide to survival. There is nothing here to filter out, no political rhetoric, just straight fact and easy-to-understand instructions on how to survive in any wilderness situation. The extended sections on the Arctic were of particular interest to me because I happen to live in that zone. EVERYONE should keep a copy of this in their home, car, and camper!
Survival Guide Feb 17, 2008
A needed reference for any one who is into survival. Written for the solder in all of us.
It IS a military manual after all Nov 7, 2007
As a civilian I found myself filtering a lot of the information and wondering how I would adapt if I ever encounter any of the scenarios. I did enjoy the information on the psychology of survival. It gave me food for thought in rounding out my emergency gear.
Why buy what you can get for free!? Jul 3, 2007
I would recommend, as another poster has, to download this book for free just by using google and inserting Fm 21-76, then print in out. Don't waste your money.
Excellent Information and Presentation BUT Needs To Be Updated! Jul 1, 2007
This book is very interesting. I started out planning to give it a quick look and ended up reading it almost cover to cover. It contains a lot of very useful information; however, it has a 1970's copyright date and some of the information seems to be outdated. For instance, with respect to snake bites, it still recommends cutting the bite to suck out the venom and applying a tourniquet. Most authorities now indicate that these practices are not only no longer recommended but are actually now considered to be the cause of most of the serious injuries (at least from the venomous snakes in my area).
With a simple update to insure that all information reflects current knowledge, I would feel comfortable giving this book 5 stars and recommending it to everyone. That said, it is still chock full of valuable and potentially life saving information and at the price, it is still a good investment.
