After the release of U.S. PWs in early 1973, the Department of Defense prepared a plan to review the Code of Conduct. In this article, a slightly revised version of a paper prepared originally for presentation at the March 1977 meeting of the International Studies Association, Dr. Hitchens discusses some of the factors which should be considered in a review of the Code, examines some of the experiences with the Code which underlie these factors, and comments on the findings and recommendations of the DOD Review Committee.
