Survival Manual to help you overcome hard situations without internet (offline)

This is a Survival Manual / Guide based on the ( public domain ) US Army Survival Field-Manual FM 21-76.

Download it here.

It is fully working offline ( which is important to survive in a case of some extreme situation )

It contains info on how to make fire, build a shelter, heal and other useful content in a case of emergency.

Background:
