It is a digest of positive law and conventions established by treaty. Each point is illustrated with a case study. The work reflects both the greater destructive power of eighteenth century armaments and the Enlightenment-inspired movement to civilize the rules of military engagement. "Von der Section und Inspection des Coerpers," its eleventh chapter, is especially interesting. An early example of medical jurisprudence.
