Summary: This book explores not only the formal constraints on the conduct of war throughout Western history but also the unwritten conventions about what is permissible in the course of military operations. In discussions ranging from classical antiquity to the present, eminent historians examine the legal and cultural regulation of violence in such matters as belligerent rights, the treatment of prisoners and civilians, the observing of truces and immunities, the use of particular weapons,
siege warfare, codes of honor, and war crimes.
