This chapter focuses on theory and practice of the laws of war in the 17th century. The laws of war were mixed in nature, form, and purpose, but they presented a comprehensive and impressive body of moral, legal, and professional rules. These rules incorporated exceptions or, less formally, could be bent to suit circumstances. The means of enforcement and execution of justice are discussed.
