The text of the Geneva Conventions and of their Additional Protocols is very complex and not always easily understood by the layperson. A simplified work was needed to present and explain these international law treaties to an ever-increasing number of readers.

In this study, the author, Jean de Preux, comments briefly on the main provisions of the Conventions and their Additional Protocols, brings out their meaning and specifies the relevant articles. For easy reference, an index is included at the end of the book.
