Elite Forces Survival Guides: Survive in the Arctic with the Royal Marine Commandoes

The arctic wastes of the North Pole are among the most inhospitable places on earth, characterized by intense cold, howling winds, hours of darkness, and hundreds of miles of featureless, ice-encrusted landscape. It is certainly no place to be stranded. Yet, through their specialized training, the British Royal Marine Commandos are able to survive in these conditions for weeks at a time. Formed in 1664, the Commandos were originally sent as support to the fierce naval battles of the Second and Third Dutch Wars, but today they are world experts in arctic warfare. In this book you will learn the secrets of their survival techniques.
