In Survival Driving
, Deatherage takes the antiterrorist driving lessons he learned from today's war zones and shows you how to adapt them to your situation, whether you are in Baghdad, Beirut, Bogota or Brooklyn. Using straightforward rules, security checklists, photographs and drawings, he teaches you how to prepare a route analysis, including marking maps and identifying choke points and safe havens; recognize likely attack sites for IEDs, rammings, drive-by shootings and overrun attacks; reinforce and maintain your vehicles to withstand attack by selecting the proper armoring, engine, tires, alarms, windows, locks and more; spot surveillance whether it's fixed or mobile; master the driving basics of steering, braking and accelerating, as well as advanced evasive maneuvers such as forward and reverse 180-degree turns and barricade breaching; and scrutinize military or police personnel at roadblocks or accident scenes to tell whether they are real or fake. Whether you are an enlisted man or reservist about to be deployed, a security contractor or businessman stationed overseas or just a daily commuter who travels on some dangerous roads, you owe it to yourself to take this crash course in survival driving.
