"The law of armed conflict matters. This superb book is an extraordinarily rich discussion of the law of armed conflict written by a combat veteran with a true understanding of the importance of such laws for effective democratic nation war fighting. It should quickly become a standard teaching manual."

"This is the book that teachers of the law of armed conflict have been waiting for. It tackles the controversial areas with a wealth of historical and legal reference material as well as comments on recent US practice. A real bonus is that it is interestingly and lucidly written - one always wants to read more."
