To promote a better understanding of, and respect for, this body of law, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) commissioned a comprehensive update of its original 'Commentaries', of which this is the first volume. The 'First Convention' is a foundational text of international humanitarian law. It contains the essential rules on the protection of the wounded and sick, those assigned to their care, and the red cross and red crescent emblems. This article-by-article commentary takes into account developments in the law and practice to provide up-to-date interpretations of the 'Convention'. It has been reviewed by humanitarian law practitioners and academics from around the world. It is an essential tool for anyone working or studying within this field."@en ;
