Product Description

For a soldier, knowing where you are is an issue of life and death, and so it comes as no surprise that the Army has produced probably the most complete, clear, and thorough guide to map reading and navigation to be had.
The book starts with a comprehensive explanation of the meaning and uses of maps, whether photographic, planimetric (standard-style) or topographic, then progresses to speak about the usage of those maps, discussing compass techniques, celestial navigation, and determination of distance. There’s a detailed section on interpreting topographic maps, with notes on tactical considerations for differing terrain, in addition to determining the ease of movement through an area.

Chapters include:

Training Strategy – Maps -Marginal Information and Symbols – Grids – Scale and Distance -Direction – Overlays – Aerial Photographs – Navigation Equipment and Methods – Elevation and Relief – Terrain Association – Mounted Land Navigation – Navigation in Different Sorts of Terrain – Unit Sustainment

There may be information on field sketching, the tricky art of map folding, units of measure and conversion factors, map symbols, orienteering, and the global positioning system (GPS).
For the adult outdoorsman venturing into the wild, the Boy Scout, or the serious military buff, the Army’s guide to map reading and navigation is an indispensable will have to.
