I’ll just copy my thoughts over from the main thread here:

This chapter seems to be a neat encapsulation of the dynamic of the book: a lot of downtime and sitting around in briefing rooms or counselling sessions, chaining into action with more of those brutal battlefield descriptions, and then all its narrative energy kind of fizzling out at the end ready to repeat the cycle: action never chains into action, it only falls back into another set of briefing and introspection. JP still hasn’t said anything about his motive in doing all this either.
