Please re-attach the file you have added, setting the file type to "auto-detect" rather than "text/plain".

sample doc with auto-detected content type
I have reattached the doc with auto-detected content type. Thanks for looking at this.
I can confirm this behaviour on Windows 8 with LibreOffice 184.108.40.206.
My guess is that the table format of the .doc file is not correctly taken over into LibreOffice. There is one text that spans over a page that is not breaking at a page although the setting is set to page break even within cells.
I saved the file as .docx with MS Word 2010 and opened this file in LibreOffice. The new page count is 11 and not 13 anymore ;-)
If I save this files as .odt in MS Word 2010, then it is correctly displayed in LibreOffice.
I can still reproduce this with LO 220.127.116.11
In Word 2010 it has 9 pages in LO 12 pages.
Looks like that tables that span more than one page - although the setting says break across pages within fields - are put at the top of the next page
It does not even matter if I save this file as .odt
But more interesting behaviour is if I save this file in LO as .docx (from the .doc) and reopen it - the tables are screwed up and the document has 26 pages...
still present in 18.104.22.168
still present in 22.214.171.124.beta1 (Windows)
This was never OK. In OO it was worse with 40 pages, but it was improved somewhere in LO 3.5.x. I'll mark as 126.96.36.199. because 188.8.131.52. is similar to current versions up to 4.5.0-dev.
bug still valid in 184.108.40.206 Win_x64
even more severe - Writer crashes after opening...

Didn't crash for me, might have been some intermittent issue that got fixed with the help of the crashtesting VM.
Win 7 Pro 64-bit Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha1+ (x64)
Build ID: a51ac4d2bb8c4f1ea1d4ea7569863e2fb6535b02
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@62-TDF, Branch:MASTER, Time: 2015-06-22_21:37:53
Locale: fi-FI (fi_FI)
no crash anymore with 22.214.171.124 64bit on Win8.1 64bit
but the spacing problem remains...

LO had 12 pages up to 5.1. 5.2 and on to 6.0+ open with 19 pages. In Word 2010 it has 9 pages, as Mark wrote.

Sample DOC saved in MSO as PDF
libo-master~2018-07-19_05.23.09_LibreOfficeDev_184.108.40.206.alpha0_Win_x86 opens 12 pages. Guess Bug 118528 decreased from 19 to 12.
So this bug remains to get proper reflow with 9 pages.
