Field Manual 3-05.70 Survival: May 2002



Finally, a complete print edition of US Army Field Manual 30-5.70 Survival

Unlike others, which are hurriedly put together from internet-sourced text files and low-res pictures and tables, this edition is complete and unadulterated with high-resolution graphics and images. The page count, table of contents, illustrations, photos, tables, index and appendices are all precisely where they should be in this definitive 676 page print edition.

As far as military survival training manuals go, there are none to equal FM 3-05.70 Survival for sheer usefulness. When tasked with updating the old and outdated FM 21-76 Survival back in the late 1990s, those SERE experts at the US Army’s John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School took their collective decades of field survival experience and combined it all with classic and effective survival methods; traditional bushcraft and primitive skills and wrapped it all up in a highly-practical, exhaustively-tested, scholarly and encyclopedic approach to rescue, survival psychology and living off the land in order to ensure our fighting men and women have the best chance to make it home from any given survival situation. As a result, these Special Forces SERE experts made Field Manual 3-05.70 one of the best military survival guides ever written
