Experts agree that the next terrorist attack on our soil will not come in the same form as September 11. The possibility of nuclear, chemical or biological attack is increasingly likely. The U.S. Armed Forces Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Counter-Terrorism Handbook will enable its readers to survive such an attack. It contains the best practices of the United States' military, completely edited and adapted for civilian use.
For example, readers will learn how to:
Gain knowledge of an impending chemical attack using a simple warning system;
Protect against biological threats such as anthrax with a series of inoculations;
Guard against fallout from a terrorist nuke;
Achieve basic protection during chemical or biological attacks with a simple mask; and
Administer first aid after nuclear, chemical or biological attacks with a simple first aid kit.
It's all here. This handbook is the single most effective tool for civilians to protect themselves and their loved ones against the threat looming over our homeland.
