After reading the man pages I did try
and it did untar the archive but it did not uncompress the data in the folders.
By the way, I do not think that the man pages were written for the masses.

The masses use Windows and Macs
tar only compressed what you told it to: a directory. If there were other compressed things inside it then that's a separate issue to deal with.
