Deskbooks on commanders and the law

The Military Commander and the Law (2019) (507 pp., free) has been released by the U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate General's School. "This publication is used as a deskbook for instruction at various commander courses at Air University. It also serves as a helpful reference guide for commanders in the field, providing general guidance and helping commanders to clarify issues and identify potential problem areas."

The Air Force is not alone. The Naval Justice School publishes the USN/USMC Commander's Quick Reference Legal Handbook (QUICKMAN) (Oct. 2018) (171 pp., free).

The Criminal Law Department at the Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School publishes the Criminal Law Deskbook: Practicing Military Justice (Jan. 2019) (1035 pp., free). This behemoth is for lawyers, however, not commanders.
