We see posts all the time mentioning the SAS survival guide or the Special Forces Handbook. What commercially available field manuals do you believe to be must haves?

Probably one of the most under-read manuals....the Engineer's handbook. It describes how to most efficiently use physics to lift,or move things.How to move and use earth.How to rig loads.How to use hand tools.Tie knots.

In order of importance for me

SAS Survival Handbook
Construction Battalion Battle Skills Guide (Naval Construction Force/Seabees)
FM 21-76
SAS Combat Handbook (kind of redundant from the Survival, but it has more in it than the SH that might be helpful in an urban situation).
The Farmers Almanac.




The Green Book (IRA Training manual. Simply for interest.)

Bush Craft by Ray Mears, a good book. He also has various clips on You Tube.
