Land Nav: Basic to Advanced, WLC, ALC, SLC, Ranger SF, Delta Selection
Land Nav: Basic to Advanced, WLC, ALC, SLC, Ranger SF, Delta Selection by Bronston Clough trains Soldiers to navigate through multiple environments without electronic equipment. The information and techniques in this book are invaluable and essential in harsh environments with little to no help.
When Soldiers depend too much on technology, they will be in trouble the moment it is all taken away. Clough teaches what the Army fails to do: navigate the land and understand how nature itself can help even in the most deadly situations.
The “Basic” section of Land Nav explains the bare essentials needed to know in order to navigate. The author teaches how to work a compass, find your position on a map, how to measure distances and more. The “Advanced” section of the book focuses on more extensive navigation techniques like map folding, field expedient methods of determining direction, and a chapter on Ranger School and SFAS.
