Fighting Instructions, 1530-1816
by Julian S. Corbett
Publisher: Navy Records Society 1905
Number of pages: 400
The discovery of a number of seventeenth century Instructions amongst the Earl of Dartmouth's papers, which he had generously placed at the disposal of the Society, seemed to encourage an attempt to make something like a complete collection. The result, such as it is, is now offered to the Society. It is by no means exhaustive. Some sets of Instructions seem to be lost beyond recall; but, on the other hand, a good deal of hitherto barren ground has been filled, and it is hoped that the collection may be of some assistance for a fresh study of the principles which underlie the development of naval tactics.

This is a book of memories about war. Although it describes both good and bad, overall it portrays war as an arena of horror and tragedy. Although all such conflicts involve peculiar sets of circumstances, their worst aspects remain constant.

Inside War argues that XXI century wars are products of the blurring of the public-private divide, induced by the end of the Cold War. Also, internal and external factors are blurred and the border between war and crime is becoming ever more elusive.

Just war theory exists to stop armies and countries from using armed force without good cause. But how can we judge whether a war is just? In this original book, John W. Lango takes some distinctive approaches to the ethics of armed conflict.

This book is the product of experience rather than research, of consultation rather than reading. I have tried to incorporate those concepts and doctrines which found readiest acceptance among the men actually doing the job.
