Aspects of the distinction principle under the US DoD Law of War Manual
The United States Department of Defense Law of War Manual : commentary and critique
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2018
In this chapter an attempt has been made to comment on apparently noteworthy aspects of the first sections of Chapter V of the United States Department of Defense Manual, entitled "Conduct of hostilities." That is a substantial component in the manual, and the present text limits itself to considering those sections and paragraphs of the chapter that deals with the principles of distinction and discrimination, with attacks and with the precautions and proportionality rules.
