The Hostage Rescue Manual provides a comprehensive guide to its 
subject, with examples from real events across a range of hostage 
scenarios. No prior knowledge of the subject is required to 
understand the presentation of the subject.

Hostage situations are becoming very common around the world and take 
place in almost every vehicle and location type. Many incidents are 
terrorist action. Some are planned from the start to take hostages 
for a variety of reasons. In other cases a criminal or terrorist 
attack ends up with the perpetrators being contained but taking 
hostage those unfortunate to be at the scene. It has become so common 
in some countries that the British Government has decided to fund a 
video advising British tourists what to do in the event of a terror 
attack where they may be killed or taken hostage. While tourists 
should have a reliable source of guidance to deal with such events, 
it might have been more impressive if the British Government had put 
political correctness to one side and taken effective action to 
reduce the probability of incidents occurring and protecting Britons.

This manual does a much better job, than the video, of informing 
ordinary people about the risks and the responses to deal with 
criminal and terrorist incidents where hostage taking is an objective 
or a consequence.
