Terrorism : inside a world phenomenon by Barry Davies( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and Turkish and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Terrorism: Inside a World Phenomenon is the first complete guide to a phenomenon that affects us all. Throughout this carefully researched, often shocking history, military and intelligence expert and decorated SAS veteran Barry Davies BEM exposes the true nature of modern terrorism, from its origins to the predicament we find ourselves in today. Terrorism, once epitomised by a few hijackers seizing an aircraft to highlight their grievance, has come of age in the twenty-first century. Yet who are these people? What is Al Qaeda and how does it work? Who funds the IRA? Why does ETA want its independence? How does HAMAS recruit its seemingly endless supply of suicide bombers? Can we hope to counter this multiplicity of terror which threatens our world?"--Jacket

The spycraft manual by Barry Davies( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and Japanese and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spycraft Manual is unique. There has never been a book that reveals the secret tradecraft techniques used by spies the world over. Until now. Intelligence in the field of counter-terrorism is a different and, in many aspects, arduous and dangerous task. The lives of many agents are in continuous danger. The rules of the game are cruel--as moral and ethical considerations are negated by the bullet. There is no honor between rivals on the streets of Beirut or Baghdad--only the most quickwitted survive. A modern spy must blend in, live among the enemy, speak the language, befriend, and exploit the enemy at very opportunity. They are required to be streetwise, rough, tough, and ruthless

SAS mountain and arctic survival by Barry Davies( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is difficult to imagine how anyone would enter into a polar or mountainous region unprepared. You?re prepared for your journey or you arrive by accident; for example, the aircraft you are traveling in has crash-landed over the frozen tundra, or your mode of transport has broken down in the wilderness. In all cases, providing you are uninjured, your chances of survival are good. Planned travel in a cold or mountainous environment should mean that you are well clothed and equipped. In both winter and summer, the Northern Arctic offers an abundant supply of water and food; shelter can be found or constructed above and below the tree line. The real threat comes from the cold, injury, and simply doing nothing. During the Second World War a number of service men became marooned in the arctic wasteland?most of them died. They did so because few ventured far from their crash site, they made no attempt to catch fish, hunt game, or even attempt to travel south. None that were later found had prepared a rescue signal, and most had died not from the cold but from starvation. The SAS Guide to Arctic and Mountain Survival provides details on what to do immediately after your arctic or mountain survival situation has arisen. You will learn how to prepare a shelter, especially on a barren landscape. You will learn how make a fire in the cold and wind, as well as how to find and cook food. This guide provides detailed instructions on navigation, how and when to travel, and how to prepare signal fires that will help speed up your rescue
