    1. Unfortunately there isn't much book in this book. Had this been a history and interpretation it might have been quite interesting and enjoyable. But it is simply a copy and paste from the plan, which dives deep into overwhelming minutiae. Sadly a missed opportunity, which just comes off as a tad lazy.But if you're looking for a how to guide on how to smash, burn, explode, gouge, score, trample, bury, adulterate, crush, sink and mangle various types of equipment, it's a total page turner.

    2. Very interesting! I was hoping this book would provide more discussion around the "scorched earth" documents, but the documents are still interesting in themselves. I can't help but wonder how different things would be in the present if Australia were invaded by another nation. The fear and paranoia around maps, for instance, would definitely be useless, with Google Maps at everyone's fingertips
