Presents a narrative history of Army lawyers in military operations from 1959 to 1996. Focuses on the evolution of the role of judge advocates in military operations and how this development has enhanced commanders' ability to succeed. 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. Examines what individuals did as judge advocates in selected deployments.
