The U.S. Army knows how to train their personnel to survive. Their field manual is the most authoritative guide on survival. This app provides a complete reference guide on basic survival, evasion, first aid and recovery information. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, this app may be essential to your survival.

As a lover of the outdoors you may be anywhere in the world. It may be a temperate, tropical, arctic, or sub arctic region. You expect to have all your personal equipment and or other members of your group with you wherever you go. There is, however, no guarantee that’s how your adventure will go. You could find yourself alone in a remote area— with little or no personal gear. This app provides information and describes basic techniques to enable you to survive and return alive should you find yourself in such a situation.
* Updated for compatibility with iOS 10 and above.
* Improved usability and sharing.
Ratings and Reviews
great app with tons of life saving and survival information. As a former 5th Special Forces Operator in Viet Nam, this app is more than sufficient for any novice on lightly trained hunter, hiker, explorer or anyone that may be lost or chased.
Very good with details many survival books leave out.
This is *very* interesting...
So this app is basically just a book, but it is a very cool book that might just save your life someday! Some of the stuff was ridiculously useful, like how to treat sunstroke or determine what plants can be eaten, and the rest of the stuff involved situations that you probably won't ever encounter, but it's still really interesting... like how to signal to a plane that you need help or that an enemy is approaching or whatever. I feel like I grew some new brain cells just reading this. It's so fascinating, and it makes me almost want to get stranded in the middle of alligator infested enemy territory with nothing but a knife.
