Diffusion of the Soldier's Manual
The Soldier's Manual, for the use of the armed forces, presents in words and pictures the main provisions of the Geneva Conventions of 1949. The first edition of 10,000 copies which appeared in 1969 was sent to governments and National Societies. On the basis of their comments, the work was revised and republished in the form of a pocket manual. There were subsequent editions in various languages. Reports reaching us this year show that the diffusion of the Soldier's Manual continues,both in Africa and Latin America.
