This instructable will outline several useful books for a post-apocalypse world or a country taken over by a dictator. It will also give signs that you need to begin preparing for such an event.
Step 1: Warning signs
Situation A: The day of reckoning, Armageddon, apocalypse. For this event there will be no definite warning, no small symptoms, no way to prepare unless you stay prepared. Download these books and get ready to scavenge materials when the event happens.
Situation B: Government takeover. The signs that this is about to happen would be: mass censorship, martial law, military action, and propaganda. This is the world where movies and books like Soylent Green and Demolition Man take place.
Step 2: Improvised Munitions Handbook
When it hits the fan this is the book you want, everything from explosives to home made rifles to detonators are discussed in this book. The rifles aren't the weapons you will take down legions with, however they can be useful in acquiring better weapons.
Step 3: U.S. Army Ranger Handbook
A good choice for information on survival and tactical movement, the Ranger Handbook adds very much to my guide binder. containing info. on demolition, mountaineering, and evasion/survival; it allows you to put the info. from the Improvised Munitions Handbook to good use.
