To do this you will need to map the location of mines and bobby traps e.t.c . Note the route if there is one thou the likes of a minefield and then erect barb wire and place sentries as needed . It should be noted that you must guard the route or proximity to the area otherwise you risk the likes of mines being used against you , the area being infiltrated or an all out attack against you .
It is a frustrating experience to trek through the jungle with Australians. Patrols have taken as much as nine hours to sweep a mile of terrain. They move forward a few steps at a time, stop, listen, then proceed again.
"Worse than the Americans were the Australians. The Americans style was to hit us, then call for planes and artillery. Our response was to break contact and disappear if we could…The Australians were more patient than the Americans, better guerilla fighters, better at ambushes. They liked to stay with us instead of calling in the planes. We were more afraid of their style"
