Oxford University Press

This chapter takes a look at strategy and military affairs when considering situations of war crimes. Its main concern is the possible thoughts of military personnel when dealing with accusations of war crimes. The chapter forwards the idea of the use of military voices to study different war crimes scenarios, namely the use of standoff bombardment and cluster munitions, and the execution of war prisoners during special forces missions.

Keywords:   military affairs, strategy, war crimes, military voices, standoff bombardment, cluster munitions, war prisoners, special forces missions
