This compact, easy-to-use handbook, developed out of six decades of experience by the British Army's Special Air Service Brigade, provides clear advice on navigation methods, both for a fully equipped journey and in emergency situations.Beginning with such navigation fundamentals as understanding map grid references and how to use a compass and GPS (global positioning system), this handbook goes on to provide detailed information on such subjects as finding your way without a map or compass, reading the sun and stars, navigating in extreme environments, marking trails, signaling for help, and tracking both animals and people as well as basic tips on how to elude being tracked yourself. Every procedure is demonstrated in step-by-step diagra ms that clearly outline what to do and what not to do in order to bring you and your companions safely to your destination.
