The ability to interpret a map and correlate its information with the world around one is a core life skill for everyone, but one which is often neglected.

Whether you are engaged in military operations, training exercises, orienteering, outback travel, or if you find yourself in a life-threatening survival situation such as a plane crash, map-and-compass navigation means the difference between success and failure, or between life and death for you and your party.

This handbook covers every aspect of map reading and land navigation from basic principles through to practical application, enabling you not only to travel over any terrain in the world, comfortable in the knowledge that your position is known and that you are moving towards your goal, but to educate others to be equally-capable navigators.
