SAS Mountain and Arctic Survival

SAS Mountain and Arctic Survival

by Barry Davies B.E.M. (Author)


The Special Air Service operates worldwide, often in remote and hostile locations where nature poses as much of a hazard as any enemy. In order to stay alive and complete their missions, SAS personnel are rigorously trained in the art of survival. This book is based on SAS training and techniques. As well as a section on basic survival techniques relevant to any hostile environment, this book contains specific details pertinent to survival in arctic and mountain areas, including information on shelter, food, equipment and fire making specific to the arctic, any mountain area or conditions of extreme cold. Drawing on practical, first-hand knowledge, the entries are arranged in order of survival priority, with photographs, cutaway drawings and diagrams. Specially designed to fit in a rucksack or pocket, this book offers a potentially life-saving companion for any hiking or skiing trip.
