A British company that trains journalists and others in how to protect themselves on the battlefield has packaged their protective training knowledge in downloadable books, costing about $21.00 USD. Nearly a decade ago the same company gave NPF 10 free fellowships for U.S. journalists, who reported back that the training – how to tell the difference between incoming rockets, how to protect yourself in an open field, etc. – was very valuable. The course then cost about $3,000 per person. I went down to their U.S. training facility for a day to watch what they were doing, and took these pictures. You can read about their books, here: www.centurionbooks.co.uk. You can learn more about the company here: http://www.centurionsafety.net/.
