What are the acceptable "indicia," or indicators, that an enemy is attempting to surrender? What are the obligations of an officer in command upon receiving such indicia from an enemy? And what are his obligations if the signs of surrender are ambiguous or mixed? It is the purpose of this essay to explore these questions.
