Unlike the First World War, the Second World War has already produced at this stage of its progress significant publications concerning the problems of military government which may well assist interested students and practitioners in cutting a path through this thorny field. Occupying the area of enemy countries is a task of which by all odds the most difficult part, that of the occupation of both Germany and Japan, still lies ahead. Two recently published studies, both of them by jurists with a European legal background who are at present engaged in the service of a war agency of the United States Government, must be welcomed as conspicuous contributions in this field. The first of these studies is an analysis of an important recent precedent of Allied occupation; the second of the enemy's contemporary occupational practices in Europe.
