Table of Contents

by digross, January 1, 1970

This page contains the proposed table of contents. To begin with, it is much larger than is feasible or reasonable. Let is begin by making it too big; then, we'll make it smaller.

Note also that we should also include interviews where we can from people with experience in various situations.

Part of our concept is to be a companion to ''Crimes of War.'' Our articles should show to understand (or collect evidence from) the situations and scenes they mention. Be sure to see their [http://www.crimesofwar.org/thebook/book.html table of contents].
