About this title


If anything is put over your mouth, it is likely to be chloroform or a similar drug to put you out. You have until you need to breathe to do something about this . . . If someone grabs you from behind, slouch down, then head-butt with the back of your head and stamp on their instep. Turn and strike with your fist to the jaw, knife to the belly or draw and fire . . . This is not a book about eating bugs and mushrooms. There are plenty of those around if you want to become a boy scout. If you are, or want to be, a soldier—particularly a Special Forces soldier—then this is the book you need to survive. Soldiers, undercover operatives, security services, and even those backpacking or exporting goods into some parts of the world could find themselves in serious trouble. Here, you will learn how to avoid being killed or captured when things go wrong; escape if you are caught; steal food; steal transportation; find your way home; and fight to kill in the dirtiest ways you can imagine.

About the Author:

Robert Stirling joined the British Army as a Junior Leader Paratrooper. Entering adult service and passing the Parachute Regiment selection led to four tours in Northern Ireland. Leaving the British Army, he joined the Rhodesian Army where he led his own unit of 200 men against Robert Mugabe. After the fall of Rhodesia, Robert joined the South African Special Forces as an instructor. Besides extensive combat experience in numerous conflicts, Robert has also been contracted to recover stolen diamonds, work undercover against mercenary operations, teach unarmed combat to riot police, and provide close protection to VIPs.
