Soldier's Handbook for Individual Operations and Survival in Cold-Weather Areas: Training Circular, Issues 21-23
Smashbooks, Mar 17, 1986 - 80 pages
This handbook is an aid for soldiers in cold climates. However, expertise in dealing with cold weather operations cannot be gained just from reading this handbook. To develop successful cold-weather field techniques, application training and operational experience are necessary. Additional information is available in FM 31-70, FM 31-71, FM 90-11 (TBP), and FM 9-207. Military history of operations in northern areas shows that man's success or failure is measured by his regard for the dominant characteristics of a cold-weather environment. For a soldier to become a cold-weather expert, he must learn the techniques and rules needed to fight and live in a cold-weather climate.
