Scarce Spanish translations of European military thought and strategy, from a period during which Mexico was pushing to improve the performace of its army. The three works consist of the international laws of war as they were determed by the Institute of International Law, a French treatise on nighttime army operations, and a lengthy essay on recent developments in warmaking by the commander of the Belgian army. The laws of war were essentially the first of their kind, commissioned by the Geneva Convention of 1874. We locate only one copy of this work, at the Harvard Law Library, and none of the two lengthier works that follow.
