This is not a book about eating bugs and mushrooms. There are plenty of those books around if you want to become a boy scout. If you are, or want to be, a soldier - particularly a Special Forces soldier - then this is the book you need. It is about survival in rough conditions - when you have been taken hostage or prisoner of war: when you have crawled out of a downed helicopter behind enemy lines and the enemy are coming at you; or when your mates have been killed in a fire-fight in bandid country. This ultimate survival guide is for those who choose to go into harm's way. Soldiers, undercover operatives, security services and even those backpacking or exporting goods into some parts of the world could find themselves in serious trouble. In this book, you will learn how to: avoid being killed or captured when things go wrong; escape if you are caught; steal food; steal cars; find your way home and fight to kill in the dirtiest ways you can imagine.
