'Richard Falk, one of the most prominent living academics in the field of international law, has been an insightful critic of the US war in Vietnam. For those who were caught up the Vietnam War, this book offers a ray of hope that the atrocities of that war will not be forgotten and its lessons will be learned by new generations. If we are to have a future free of war, we must recognize illegality in warfare when it occurs, and new generations must learn to respect international law, particularly the criminal accountability for crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity set forth in the Nuremberg Principles and the treaty establishing the International Criminal Court. I hope this book will be widely read throughout the world and certainly by citizens and leaders who have responsibility for decisions to use military force and for the conduct of wars.'
