About the Doublebit Military Outdoors Skills Series
Military manuals contain essential knowledge about outdoors life, thriving while in the field, and self-sufficiency. Unfortunately, many great military books, field manuals, and technical guides over the years have become less available and harder to find. These have either been rescinded by the armed forces or are otherwise out of print due to their age. This does not mean that these texts are worthless or "out of date" - in fact, the opposite is true It is true that the US Military frequently updates its manuals as its protocols have changed based on the times and combat situations that our armed services face. However, the knowledge about the outdoors over the entire history of military publication is timeless
By publishing the Military Outdoors Skills Series, it is our goal at Doublebit Press to do what we can to preserve and share historic military works, such as army field manuals (the FM series), technical manuals (the TM series), and other military books that hold timeless knowledge about outdoors life, navigation, and survival. Through remastered reprint editions of military handbooks and field manuals, we can preserve the time-tested skills and institutional knowledge that was learned through hard lessons and training by the U.S. Military and our expert soldiers.
