I found this article on a blog and thought it was worth the read

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.

The 1st. 2 look the same the 3rd. is a little different and the 4th. is just a 55 item list.

Great list and worth a look again! Along with the first two links, the authors published some useful information from a Sarajevo War survivor which is reposted below:

Advice From a Sarajevo War Survivor:

Experiencing horrible things that can happen in a war – death of parents and friends, hunger and malnutrition, endless freezing cold, fear, sniper attacks.

1. Stockpiling helps. But you never no how long trouble will last, so locate near renewable food sources.

2. Living near a well with a manual pump is like being in Eden.

3. After awhile, even gold can lose its luster.  But there is no luxury in war quite like toilet paper.  Its surplus value is greater than gold’s.

4. If you had to go without one utility, lose electricity – it’s the easiest to do without (unless you’re in a very nice climate with no need for heat.)

5. Canned foods are awesome, especially if their contents are tasty without heating.  One of the best things to stockpile is canned gravy – it makes a lot of the dry unappetizing things you find to eat in war somewhat edible.  Only needs enough heat to “warm”, not to cook. It’s cheap too, especially if you buy it in bulk.

6. Bring some books – escapist ones like romance or mysteries become more valuable as the war continues.  Sure, it’s great to have a lot of survival guides, but you’ll figure most of that out on your own anyway – trust me, you’ll have a lot of time on your hands.

7. The feeling that you’re human can fade pretty fast.  I can’t tell you how many people I knew who would have traded a much needed meal for just a little bit of toothpaste, rouge, soap or cologne.  Not much point in fighting if you have to lose your humanity.  These things are morale-builders like nothing else.

8. Slow burning candles and matches, matches, matches

That is probably the best post I've seen.  It doesn't matter how much people here prepare, think and plan stuff, it takes someone who's really gone through a life and death struggle to get a real picture of what's important.

Yes, you are so right, steedy- I think that the knowledge shared by the Sarajevo war survivor is certainly helpful information!
