It amplifies AFM 64-5, Survival, by including training information not covered in the kit edition because of weight and size limitations. AFM 64-3 can also be used as a source book for survival information. It includes much detailed information which would have been beyond the intended scope of the smaller publication; it tells the reader not only what he must do but also why he must do it. Because of the global responsibilities of the United States Air Force, all Air Force personnel face the possibility of survival in a remote or desolate area of the world. It is the purpose of the Manual to prepare all personnel participant in flights on military aircraft for an intelligent approach to any possible survival situation. The reader is shown that nature and the elements are neither friendly nor hostile and that the training and attitudes he carries with him will determine his success in survival. The Manual opens with a discussion of the problems and techniques of general land survival; psychological problems, immediate action, camping and woodcraft, travel, clothing, signaling, food, and other related subjects. Then the ensuing chapters cover the special requirements for survival in the following areas: Arctic, dessert, Tropics, sea, and sea ice. Condition: Good.
