This book should be considered an essential resource for anyone genuinely interested in understanding the law of military operations. No true understanding of the exercise of U.S. military power can be attained without a solid appreciation for how the law shapes military missions and their outcomes. This book contributes to that appreciation, and it does so with a nuanced sophistication I've come to expect from the remarkable ranks of attorney warfighters who are
the United States' JAGs." (From the Foreword)
-General Stanley A. McChrystal, U.S. Army, Retired

Before this era of asymmetric warfare, insurgencies, and terrorist attacks by non-state groups law was decidedly a backwater in the execution of military operations. As this book skillfully shows, times have changed. Law is now at the heart of battlefield operations, from planning to execution and after-action assessments. The authors deftly weave together a wide range of operational environments to show just how integral the JAGs are to the fighting force." -William
C. Banks, Board of Advisors Distinguished Professor and Director, Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism, Syracuse University

Superb analyses of the hottest legal issues in contemporary military operations, written by leading military law scholars and current and former Judge Advocate Generals based on their experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. From drones to detention to cyber warfare, this book demonstrates how carefully the U.S. military adheres to international law. U.S. Military Operations is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the role of the U.S. military
lawyer or the laws applicable to modern warfare." -John B. Bellinger III, former Legal Adviser to the Department of State

Applying the Laws of War created after WWII to today's 'legally intensive' battlefields has challenged both commanders and their uniformed lawyers. In this text, the editors have gathered the lessons learned and best practices from a wide array of experts whose expertise has been gained in the crucible of personal experience. This insider's perspective is invaluable to all who support the Rule of Law and especially to those who must implement the law in military
operations." -Walter B. Huffman, Dean Emeritus and Professor of Law, Texas Tech University School of Law, Major General, U.S. Army, Retired
