Editorial Reviews

Review

"For anyone interested in military justice during the Vietnam War, this fascinating and well-written book will be must reading. Without ignoring the most familiar high-profile war crimes cases, Allison reaches far beyond them, exploring the diverse legal issues posed by ordinary criminal prosecutions, military discipline, the drug problem, and even black market dealings and currency manipulations. He provides a unique look at how all of the services dealt with these concerns, while also conveying what it was like to be an ordinary JAG lawyer in Vietnam." -- Michael R. Belknap
