Davis, George B. A Treatise on the Military Law of the United States: Together with the Practice and Procedure of Courts-Martial and Other Military Tribunals. Third Edition, Revised. New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1915. xv, 813 pp. Reprinted 2007 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-650-5. ISBN-10: 1-58477-650-1. Cloth. $125.* Reprint of the final edition. Although the title leads one to expect a basic procedural manual, this book goes well beyond its stated purpose to offer a great deal of historical and jurisprudential information. Davis [1847-1914] examines the authority and sources of military law and its relation to civilian law. He also pays close attention to its debt to English military law and custom, some of it dating back to the middle ages. Davis [1847-1914] was Judge-Advocate General of the U.S. Army and Professor of Law at West Point.
