SAS Survival Handbook

SAS Survival Handbook 001These days, most of us keep information at our fingertips with our smart phones, ipads, etc.  However, each family should also keep an assortment of hard copy information available in case of power or internet outages.  A small home library of books on first aid and other medical helps, household repairs, emergency communication and food preparation could prove invaluable in such a situation.

The SAS Survival Handbook (there are many editions covering many circumstances) is a recommended book by many survival specialists. John Wiseman, the author of this book served for 26 years as a professional soldier with the Special Air Service (SAS), an elite unit of the British Army.  He also served as an SAS instructor and so is very qualified to write such a handbook.   The edition shown above covers such topics as putting together a survival kit, how to find water, first aid and disease treatment, location-specific survival techniques and strategies, foraging and hunting, dealing with natural and man-made disasters, shelter-building, making and breaking camp, ropes, lashings and knots.
