Existing Court-Martial System and the Ansell Army Articles, 29 Yale Law Journal 52 (1919)
Our present military code has come to us without fundamental change from the British Articles of War of 1765, which owed their origin to Rome. Whether or not this may tend to account for the remarkable indefiniteness of the punitive articles or help to explain some of the procedural peculiarities of the system, the fact remains that many of the concepts of the existing law military are so foreign to American jurisprudence as to startle and perplex the American lawyer.
