Abstract:

The manual is a guide for DoD personnel responsible for implementing the law of war and executing military operations. The current manual was released in June 2015 after a multi-year effort by military and civilian lawyers from across the Defense Department to develop a department-wide resource for military commanders, legal practitioners, and other military and civilian personnel on the international law principles governing armed conflict. The updated manual released today contains a substantial revision to the section on journalists as well as minor updates to other sections. The journalism changes reflect input provided by the news media.
