Book Review: Zombie Apocalypse Preparation

Zombie Apocalypse Preparation is a book of fiction.  I think.  I mean it says so in a disclaimer on the inside first page.  If and when you buy this book purely for some humorous edification, you have to keep in perspective at all times and upon the turn of every day that the work is… Read More

Book Review: Zero Footprint

Every once in a while you need to stop and read a good book.  A book that will make you laugh, cry, and rethink how lucky you are not to be in war or working in one of these hostile nations.  The book Zero Footprint is one of those type of books.  Written by Simon… Read More

Book Review: The Mission, The Men, and Me

I wish I could remember where I heard about this book, The Mission, The Men, and Me.  I was reading some training blog and they were talking about trimming weight from their packs and this book was mentioned.  So of course I bought it and read it immediately.  The book isn’t really about trimming gear… Read More

Book Review: Patriot Rising: The Unbroken

This is the sequel of Patriot Dawn: The Resistance Rises by Max Alexander.  The first installment is a book that is on my shelf of ‘books that must go with me’ in the event I must flee my home, right next to my survival guides.  By that I mean wild edible plants, the Constitution, and… Read More

Survival Book Review: Oathkeeper

Oathkeeper is not a prepper or post-apocalyptic survival story.  There are no EMPs, no asteroid strikes, no plagues, no collapsing governments, and no societal disorder.  No, it’s a story of the long-reaching arm of the federal Department of Justice, or maybe you could say "over-reaching" arm of the federal government.  Oathkeeper is the story of… Read More

Book Review: Everyday Survival Kits

Being prepared is more than knowledge, it is also gear. Leave your visions of surviving on just what is around you for Tom Hanks and his Castaway scenario. Had Mr. Hanks more than a soccer ball and video tapes, he would have been off that island in days, not years. But frankly, this book does… Read More

Book Review: Directive 51

I have been pouring through some survival manuals recently and as I read them I was thinking, OK this is good stuff.  Each book has its own unique flair and that is due to the writer’s own experiences.  I always learn something from a manual and always receive a reminder of stuff I haven’t thought… Read More

Book Review: The Evolution Of The Black Rifle

If you are like me and love the AR-15 platform, then you should consider reading the new book by Jeff Zimba called The Evolution of the Black Rifle: 20 Years of Upgrades and Accessories.  As you can infer from the title, the book was written with 20 years of experience by a person who knows… Read More

Book Review: Survival Guns – A Beginner’s Guide

If you are a reader of Survival Cache or SHTFBlog then you have probably spent some time thinking about survival guns.  Like you, I have spent more time than I care to admit reading comments and forums with people arguing about the best firearms for survival or the best caliber for a pistol or rifle… Read More

Book Review: American Sniper

Although American Sniper is not the typical book that we review on Survival Cache or SHTFBlog, we felt that this book was good enough to break the mold of our book reviews.  As far as redeeming survival lessons in American Sniper, there are quite a few that you can gain by reading this book.  Plus… Read More
