Known officially as General Orders No. 100, Lieber's code(1863) was the first of its kind. The foundation of themodern international law of war, it served as the model forseveral European military codes and was an important sourcefor the second and fourth Hague Conventions (1899, 1907). Itwas an authority during the Nuremberg and Tokyo war crimetrials. Its use by the framers of the 1998 Rome Treaty,which established the International Criminal Court,demonstrates its lasting value in our time.Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
