If you had to write a set of rules for war, what would they be? The list of bullet points will help you think about rules covering all different aspects of war. Don’t forget – all sides in the war have to keep these rules. Think about how you want your soldiers and civilians to be treated.
• Captured soldiers – what will you do with them? How will you treat them?
• Hospitals in battle zones – will you allow them? Can they be attacked?
• Wounded soldiers (captured or on the battlefield) – what will you do with them?
• Weapons – what types are okay to use?
• Battlefield – what counts as the battle zone?
• Enemy civilians – can you target them? How will you treat them if you capture their town?
• Targets – what is it okay to shoot at or destroy?
