Nelson and Waters on WWII Allied Bombing of Civilians

Just posted on SSRN and destined for vol. 14 of the Journal of the History of International Law, University of Windsor Professors Christopher P.M. Waters and Robert Nelson (of the Faculty of Law and Department of History respectively) collaborate on "The Allied Bombing of German Cities During the Second World War from a Canadian Perspective."

Here's the abstract:

This paper addresses the history of the legality of the aerial bombardment of civilians, from the earliest attempts at legalization, through the inter-war period and into the actual bombing campaigns of the Second World War. We then chart the paucity of discussion of the legality of said bombing both during the war and throughout the Cold War, and finish with the occasional interruptions to the legal silence since 1992 in Canada and elsewhere.
