A few weeks back we posted that you could download the FM 21-76 US Army Survival Manual. Well we now have the FM3-05-70 Survival Field Manual Reprint of 2003 Edition available for download. Just click the image or click here to download the PDF. As a soldier, you can be sent to any area of the world. It may be in a temperate, tropical, arctic, or subarctic region. You expect to have all your personal equipment and your unit members with you wherever you go. However, there is no guarantee it will be so. You could find yourself alone in a remote area—possibly enemy territory—with little or no personal gear.
This manual provides information and describes basic techniques that will enable you to survive and return alive should you find yourself in such a situation.
