This manual i ~ a practical guide to court-martial and military justice procedure. It is not a substitute for the Manual for Courts-Martial but is intended as an aid in using that book. The Manual for Courts-Martial is a legal work, covering comprehensively, but concisely, the basic law and procedure of military justice. However, officers need to know not merely the legal principles but how to apply them practically in a given situation, what to insert in the blanks on the first page of a charge sheet, for example, or how to state to an accused the effect of his plea of guilty, or how to draft a c~urt-martial order where several.accused have been tried jointly. It is to answer such questions as these that this manu311 is designed. Accordingly, it,contains numerous appendices, containing a "step by step " outline of trial procedure, a specimen record of trial by general, special, and summary courts martial and examples of all other papers and forms commonly encountered in court-martial procedure.
