NAVAL WAR COLLEGE
Allied and associated power: (1914- )
Since 1915 it has seemed advisable that the Naval War College publications on international law should present the material with which officers might be concerned. Following this precedent the treaty of peace with Germany of June 28, 1919, would naturally be made the volume for 1919. In publishing this treaty the text submitted to the Senate of the United States on July 10, 1919, has been used. An index has been added in order that the provisions of the treaty may easily be consulted. Although the treaty has not been ratified by the United States, its provisions are of importance to officers because the treaty is already operative as regards certain States in their relations with one another and with Germany.
The discussions upon international law at the Naval War-College have been conducted by George Grafton Wilson, LL D., professor of international law in Harvard University, and have given special attention to problems arising under the treaty of peace.
