Format: Paperback
This is a reprint of the United States Air Force manual number AF116-1202 dated 3 May 2001.

This is the manual used for training their pararescue jumpers. As such it covers every aspect of the job from jumping out of the airplace (static line or freefall), how to let yourself down if you are caught in a tree, and what to do once you get down to the ground (or water). It includes operations in both peacetime and in the combat zone.

As you would expect from an official document written by the Air Force, it does not the most exciting style in the world. But you can rest assured that it is correct in the way it defines Air Force policy. I found myself looking at the book, deciding not to buy it, and then continuing to think about it as I wandered around the book store. I finally had to give up and go back to get it. I'm glad that I did. I don't expect to ever be a pararescue jumper, and I certainly hope that I never need their services. But I found the book to be quite interesting reading.

Some of their techniques, like searching underwater make excellent sense once you see what their procedures are. That's just one of many things that I hadn't thought about at all that I found interesting in the book. It's not my area of work, but I'm glad that someone has thought this out.

After serving in the Air Force for just over 21 years, this book would be useful to anyone that wants to lean to survive in todays natural disasters such as Earth Quakes, Hurricanes, Tornados and so on. You can never be to prepared for what may come. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
