The United States Department of Defense Law of War Manual : commentary and critique
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2018
This chapter considers the provisions of the Department of Defense Law of War Manual in light of its larger implications for effective operational command and control relationships within military coalitions. It considers the Manual's formulations as they relate to commanders' responsibilities during operations alongside other national forces. The following section summarizes the Manual's interrelationship to the emerging practice of the International Criminal Court. It then focuses on the modern parameters of the duty to investigate allegations of war crimes.
