1917. Corrected to April 15, 1917. These Rules of Land Warfare, published by the War Department, Office of the Chief of Staff, were prepared for use of officers of the land forces of the United States. The official translations are printed in heavy type for the purpose of distinguishing them from the other portions of the text, much of which is explanatory, and yet a considerable part of which is believed to present the substantive law as to matters upon which The Hague and Geneva conventions are silent or by no means complete. An interesting booklet for students of history.
