Survive or Die
Survival Techniques to Stay Alive Behind Enemy Lines
and/or in the Wilderness
265 pages; 16 chapters and 4 appendixes
The printable e-book Survive or Die is edited material that provides
detailed survival techniques to enable a person to stay alive
behind enemy lines and/or in the wilderness. Any reader will
recognize that any individual or forces trapped behind enemy lines
in future conflicts may not experience quick recovery by friendly elements,
and will be forced to utilize advanced evasion and survival techniques.
We at QuikManeuvers.com believe that every person should prepare for
the future possibility of conflict here in our homeland, and educate
themselves about survival techniques and evasion practices.
Survive or Die offers specific and detailed standard survival techniques
like general first aid, food and water procurement, firecraft, and shelter building. It also includes evasion and
camouflage survival techniques and procedures.
Any reader fascinated by the plethora of survival shows currently offered on television will find the survival
techniques described in Survive or Die a valuable compendium to augment any lessons learned.
A survival situation can befall anyone, anywhere, anytime, so remember: failure to plan is a plan to fail. Get
educated and prepared. Read, study and absorb the lessons in Survive or Die.
“Once you have moved into the area in which you want to hide (hide area), select a hide site. Keep the word BLISS in
mind when selecting a hide site:
B-Blends in with the surroundings.
L-Low in silhouette.
I-Irregular in shape.
S-Small in size.
After moving and hiding for several days, usually three or four, you or the evasion team will have to move into a hole-up
area. This is an area where you can rest, recuperate, and obtain and prepare food. Choose an area near a water source.
You then have a place to get water, to place fishing devices, and to trap game. Since waterways are a line of
communication, locate your hide site well away from the water.
The hole-up area should offer plenty of cover and concealment for movement in and around the vicinity. If your enemy
has technological devices, you must utilize procedures to mask such things as heat signatures (subject in a future
Quikmaneuvers.com survival manual). Always maintain security while in the hole-up area and do not ever abandon it
unless you decide to continue evasion. Actions in the hole-up area are the same as in the hide site, except that you can
move away from the hole-up area to get and prepare food. While in the hole-up area, you can:
-Select and occupy the next hide site (remember you are still in a dangerous situation; this is not a friendly area).
-Reconnoiter the area for resources and potential concealed movement routes to the alternate hide site.
-Gather food (nuts, berries, vegetables). When moving around the area for food, maintain security and avoid leaving
tracks or other signs. When setting traps and snares, keep them well-camouflaged and in areas where people are not
likely to discover them. Remember, the local population sometimes heavily travels trails near water sources. If you must
dry fish or meat over a fire, you must use special fire site masking procedures.
-Get water from sources within the hide area. Be careful not to leave tracks of signs along the banks of water sources
when getting water. Moving on hard rocks or logs along the banks to get water will reduce the signs you leave. Anti-
tracking procedures must be employed at all times.
-Set clandestine fishing devices, such as stakeouts, below the surface of the water to avoid detection.
Locate a fire site well away from the hide site. Use this site to prepare food or boil water. Camouflage and sterilize the fire
site after each use. Be careful that smoke, light, and odors from the fire do not compromise the hole-up area.”
