From the introduction:
This book is in three sections specially designed for modern war...(and) was written in answer to the challenge thrown out by the Axis. "Blitzkreig" demanded colossal map reading skill on the part of German troops. And British troops who escaped from Hong Kong have testified to the excellent Map reading ability of the Japanese soldier, who advanced to the attack map in hand. SO WHAT ABOUT IT CHAPS?
