How to survive in the wild, in any climate, on land or at sea
This is the original and bestselling survival handbook, the international bestseller which in the ten years since it was published has been often imitated but never bettered.
This book is based on the training techniques of the Special Air Service, the world's most famous elite fighting force, and shows how to survive outdoors, on land or at sea, in any weather, in any part of the world.

From obtaining food, building a camp and administering emergency first aid to navigating your way to safety and dealing with natural disasters, THE SAS SURVIVAL HANDBOOK could actually save your life.
John 'Lofty' Wiseman served for 26 years with the Special Air Service and was their Chief Survival Instructor. He remains the foremost authority on SAS training techniques for civilians and his TV appearances include Lenny Henry's Big Amazon Adventure.
