ARMY FIELD MANUAL ON SURVIVAL

"All of us were born kicking and fighting to live, but we have become
used to the soft life.... What happens when we are faced with a
survival situation with its stresses, inconveniences, and discomforts?"

That question is posed in a 2002 U.S. Army Field Manual on survival
strategies and techniques in emergency situations.

Almost all of the contents will be familiar to students of wilderness
medicine and first aid. (Except maybe "Prepare yourself to survive in a
nuclear environment.")  Nevertheless, U.S. Army web sites do not permit
public access to the document, which says that distribution is limited
to government agencies and contractors.  A copy was obtained by Secrecy
News.

See "Survival," U.S. Army Field Manual FM 3-05.70, May 2002 (676 pages
in an extremely large 45 MB PDF file):  CLICK HERE
