Attached is the raw text conversion of all 614 pages of the Herrick Campaign Report.pdf cut & pasted into a word document.

Method:
Open Report web page displaying .pdf image
Print page to .pdf file
Use Abbyy Finereader Sprint 8.0 software to read & convert to text document
Cut & paste from text format to word format

Abbyy software has function to read spreadsheets & maybe to work with images as well (when option to convert original image to html format) - i’ll have a play & see if i can improve.

Convenient that all the intelligence lessons have been removed. A good 80% of the removed text under I2 and C4ISTAR is no more classified than much of the released stuff.

I've found my favourite line from the report, and it's at the top of the introduction! So if there's only one thing you take from our 8 year campaign in Helmand, let it be this:

'Some drink deeply from the river of knowledge. Others only gargle'
I've converted the introduction, pages 31 to 37 to a 10 page word format document. I'll get more done as i am able.
