We are happy to make this manual available here.
This is a manual targeted at soldiers, but a lot of information it contains is very relevant for civilians. It has the merit of existing, it is up to date, and talks about subjects in a no non-sense, pratical way. Its content has been field tested for years, and is therefore much more to be trusted than the writing of a single author.
We provide it as it is, just translated to html media, up to you to find what is of use or not. It does make a good base to start reading about survival and basic outdoor survival skills.
If there are parts you do not agree, we recommend you to use the comment feature available for each chapter, so that everybody can benefit from them.
