Reviews - What do customers think about U.S. Army Map Reading and Land Navigation Handbook (U.S. Army)?
not to learn from Jun 12, 2007
Found this book confusing. Maps are illegible which makes the text irrelevant. It covers way too much detail all at once instead of progressing through steps. Covers alot of info and data useful only for those in the military. May work in conjunction with a lecture course, but by itself I would be surprised if anyone learned only from this book. I am new to this so maybe it's just not for beginners.
Learn to Navigate Apr 10, 2007
Study orienteering with the handbook used by the U.S. Army. This guide is perfect for any outdoorsman or for teaching Boy Scouts how to use a compass.
First choice for teaching purposes Mar 7, 2007
I own several excellent books on compass use and "orienteering." The Army version "Map Reading and Land Navigation" is the simplest and most straightforward explanation of how to get around with just a compass and a map. If I were teaching teenagers (Scouts, etc.) how to use these tools this would be my choice of text.
