Tactical Field Support

Watermarked PDF

The sound of the artillery batteries was a distant thunder on the far horizon. Temporarily safe at the bottom of a hastily digged foxhole, Ranger Callahan considered his options. With his Gear blown out from under him by a well-concealed mine, these were dreadfully limited.

Callahan immediatly ruled out any thought of a pick-up. This far out on the border, no operation was completely official, and if you missed the first bus home there was no second service.

"If I'm to make it out of here, I'll have to do it all by myself," he thought grimly. He carefully evaluated his meager possessions: a survival knife and kit, a small bedroll, a light anti-armor rocket launcher. He repacked them carefully in his backpack and peered out of the foxhole. Nothing in sight.

"No sense in staying here," he muttered while climbing out. Half-crouched, he began to run toward friendly lines - or at least, where they still were when he last heard from Command. Far ahead of him, he could see shafts of light rising into the night sky, probably the odd artillery rockets fired to make troops keep their head down.

"It's gonna be one hell of a walk back to the firebase," Callahan thought, "but if I make it I'll be getting drinks off the story for cycles..."

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
