US Army Field Manuals

This came up on another thread.

Most US Army Field Manuals are available for free download from

Some of them are fairly irrelevant - you are unlikely to be in possession of a plane or helicopter which can make air drops. Many, on the other hand, are worth picking up and having a read through. Some are worth printing out and laminating as part of your hard copy survival library.

Small note on print outs - if possible, print out using a laser printer, not an ink jet. The laser printer bonds the toner to the paper and they become one.

PS - read FM21-10 FIRST. You will thank me for that if you ever need it. The shit, instead of hitting the fan, gets neatly disposed of without giving you cholera.

Before you bitch about the youth of today ... think about who raised them.

I have a nice hardcover version of most of the survival manuals combined into one. Covers everything from first aid, to plant identification, to hunting and trapping.
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.
