Reprint of the first edition of the first American work on the subject.

It also contains an extensive appendix with forms, the articles of war and extracts from relevant supporting texts. Macomb [1782-1841], one of the first officers trained at West Point, was a judge-advocate in the U.S. Army. He was decorated for his conduct in the Battle of Plattsburg during the War of 1812 and ended his career as commander-in-chief of the army, a post he filled with distinction.
