    Survival Manual Guide US Army FM 21-76

    Preface
    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.

    If you are a trainer, use this information as a base on
    which to build survival training. You know the areas
    to which your unit is likely to deploy, the means by
    which it will travel, and the territory through which it
    will travel. Read what this manual says about
    survival in those particular areas and find out all you
    can about those areas. Read other books on survival.
    Develop a survival-training program that will enable
    your to meet any survival situation they may face. It can make the difference between life
    and death.
