Judge Advocates in Combat: Army Lawyers in Military Operations from Vietnam to Haiti

By Frederic L. Borch

This narrative history of Army lawyers in military operations begins in 1959, when the first judge advocate reported for duty in Vietnam, and concludes in 1996, when the last Army lawyers participating in United Nations operations in Haiti returned home to the United States. Its principal theme is the evolution of the role of judge advocates in military operations and how this development has enhanced commanders' ability to succeed. As the role of judge advocates changed dramatically during this period, this text explores how soldier lawyers have evolved from their Vietnam era responsibility simply to provide traditional legal services, to today's practice of "operational law" in which Army lawyers provide a broad range of legal services that directly affect the conduct of an operation.
