Jungle SNAFUs…And Remedies

Friends often ask me what I use for historical reference. Well aside from a failing memory, I own a lot of books. With the recent interest in Jungle clothing and equipment, I highly recommend the book, “Jungle SNAFUs…And Remedies” by Cresson H Kearney Maj, USA (Ret).  It tells the story of WWII jungle warfare development. 

The book has a website with sample chapters.

    My Grandfather was in Korea, and he greatly appreciated this book. When my brothers and I were little, he gave us a copy and explained how it would teach problem-solving.

    I remember Cresson Kearny’s “Nuclear War Survival Skills”. He was a very systematic l tinkerer-inventor, backed up with a solid scientific education, and practical experience.
