What do you do if your aircraft ditches in the sea? Or your building is on fire? Or you are the victim of a terrorist attack? Would you make the right decision to save yourself and the lives of others? SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Crisis Survival, is a complete handbook to any crisis that may suddenly arise, from food or water shortages, to natural disasters, to plane crashes and hostage situations. A crisis might last a few hours, days, or even years – with this book you can be ready for any eventuality.
