Frederick R. Sidell, M.D., spent 31 years at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense. While with the government, Dr. Sidell saw hundreds of casualties from chemical warfare agents, wrote extensively on this topic in scientific and medical journals and books. In 1979 the Army Surgeon General sent him to Thailand to investigate the alleged use of chemical agents against the refugees Laos, and in March 1995 he was one of three physicians sent by the State Department to Tokyo to...

21st Century Germs, Germ Warfare, Anthrax, and Bioterrorism: Fort Detrick Official Medical Management Handbook plus Complete Guide to Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Terrorism (Book and CD-ROM)
by U.S. Government

Book Description
The book portion of this title is a reproduction of the highly acclaimed "Blue Book" written by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute Of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick, Maryland - "Medical Management Of Biological Casualties Handbook" newly revised Fourth Edition, February 2001. In the introduction, the authors state: "The global biological warfare threat is serious, and the potential for devastating casualties is high for certain biological agents. There are at least 10 countries around the world currently that have offensive biological weapons programs. However, with appropriate use of medical countermeasures either already developed or under development, many casualties can be prevented or minimized. The purpose for this handbook is to serve as a concise manual that will guide medical personnel in the prophylaxis and management of biological casualties. It is designed as a quick reference and overview." The handbook, with 124 pages, covers every bacterial and viral agent, with important information on prevention and treatment. Please see the Table of Contents link on this page for additional content details.

With the handbook we're including our best-selling CD-ROM, "21st Century Complete Guide to Bioterrorism, Biological and Chemical Weapons, Germs and Germ Warfare, Nuclear and Radiation Terrorism - Military Manuals and Federal Documents with Practical Emergency Plans, Protective Measures, Medical Treatment and Survival Information" (ISBN 1-931828-09-1). This incredible CD-ROM provides the best, most up-to-date and comprehensive collection available anywhere of official information and documents on the threats posed by terrorism and weapons of mass destruction: bioterror agents like anthrax, smallpox, and plague; chemical agents including nerve gas; military and improvised nuclear weapons; radiological weapons; and radiation from nuclear facility sabotage and accidents. It is an encyclopedic collection of manuals, handbooks, self-study courses, government plans and programs, and reference works including virtually every public domain document pertaining to every aspect of the risk to civilians from terrorism, and to military personnel in warfare. Over 30,000 pages in 146 documents (occupying over 600 MB) from all major Federal agencies, including the Department of Defense, U.S. Army, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Dept. of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dept. of Energy, Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), EPA, and GAO give detailed, useful, practical, current information on the NBC (nuclear, biological, and chemical) threat.

The documents on the CD-ROM are reproduced using Adobe Acrobat PDF software - allowing direct viewing on Windows and Apple Macintosh systems. Reader software is included on the CD.

bo02.jpg (7011 octets)Sas Encyclopedia of Survival
by Barry Davies

One of the best survival manuals available!, May 25, 2000
Reviewer: Mark from Utah
The SAS Encyclopedia of Survival is one of the best in its' class! I fully recommend it to anyone seriously interested in valid survival techniques. I spent several years living in the Andes and remote jungle areas of South America and I believe that I can recognize a decent survival manual when I see one. Many survival books being sold are worthless in the field, as their content depends on items that need to be packed in. Barry Davies's book is not one of those. The book covers the topics most often discussed in other books such as shelter, fire and food, but the outstanding thing about the book is that it also has specific chapters on survival in Arctic, desert, and jungle areas. The pictures found throughout the book are great although some like the ones showing snares could be supported with illustrations as the photos are too vague to show any details. An interesting chapter in evading capture is the frosting on the cake for the book. This book is easy to read, not being dry like so many military manuals. The advice is sound and practical, and can be applied easily using common sense. I would reccomend it for anyone traveling to the wild areas of South America because it teaches you what to do to save yourself when working or traveling in an area where there are no ranger stations or local search and rescue teams. The chapter on survival medicine is also superior to that found in most other books. A great reference in any outdoorsman's library!

by Edward L., Jr. Wallace

The author, Edward L Wallace , July 2, 1998
Concerning the javelin event
Most of my coaching experience (38 years) has been in the state of Illinois on the high school level. The javelin is not a part of our track and field program. I am presently coaching the jumps, sprints and relays on the collegiate level. Since this book is basically a survival guide for coaches on the high school level I did not feel that it was my bounden duty to include the javelin. My book's major mission is to assist coaches who are without facilities, equipment, assistant coaches or budget. I feel my book accomplishes that objective. I have read 300 books on track and field and none of them have covered EVERY aspect of track and field from A to Z. I wrote 400 pages and my editor cautioned me not write any further.I regret that you have negative feelings about my book, but I wrote what I could within the parameters that I was given.

bo07.jpg (6055 octets)Primitive Wilderness Living & Survival Skills: Naked into the Wilderness
by John McPherson

Reviewer: Jon Nelson from Illinois
This book is an excellent beginners guide for the inexperienced outdoorsman.

The book contains 10 well developed chapters that will get you well on your way to being able to "live off the land." The topics covered in this book are as follows: tanning deer skins, making fire, cordage, making a bow and arrows, making traps, meat preservation, primitive cooking methods, field dressing and butchering a deer, container making (baskets and pottery), making tools, and making shelters.

Most of these topics are covered in amazing detail with plenty of photographs. The McPhersons do an excellent job of explaining the topics so that even people with no outdoor experience could perform the task almost immediately. The only exception I found was the chapter on making baskets. Even though I read the chapter several times, I do not feel I could not weave a basket (in all do fairness, it may be easier when I actually attempt the task).

I can not stress enough how easy this book makes a seemingly impossible task for people who lack the basic knowledge of wilderness survival skills. The McPhersons don't just give you the instructions, they also explain the physics or logic behind what they are writing about. I recommend this book to anyone who needs/wants a firm foundation in basic survival skills.

by Ben N. Venzke

National Military Intelligence Association (NMIA) Zgram - March 19, 1998
This is a super book! It doesn't drone on and on about the composition and history of Chemical and Biological Weapons - it is indeed a First Responder's Handbook providing initial assessment, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, decontamination and precautions. There is also a section devoted to the establishment of a decontaminization zone. Very fine work.
