Is S(t=5)=(1-h(t=1))*(1-h(t=2))*(1-h(t=3))*(1-h(t=4))*(1-h(t=5)) in discrete survival analysis?

    For simplicity, let the censoring time t=5.
    I often see some lecture notes in the internet or personal websites have
    the following formula in the discrete survival analysis.
    S(t=5)=(1-h(t=1))*(1-h(t=2))*(1-h(t=3))*(1-h(t=4))*(1-h(t=5))
    where h is the hazard rate.
    However, I could not find any textbooks containing this formula.
    Is the formula correct? If it is, could please let me know what books I
    can find it?
    Thanks.
