21 War Department, Army-Navy Manual of Military Government and Civil Affairs, FM 27-5, 22 Dec 43. Later critics have sometimes attributed a deliberate hardening of policy to the revised FM 27-5. (See Carl J. Friedrich, ed., American Experiences in Military Government in World War II [New York: Rinehart and Company, Inc., 1948], pp. 31-37.) The manual does seem to have struck a more severe tone by its emphasis on employment of civil affairs to aid and promote military operations and its consequent apparent abandonment of the overt humanitarianism of the 1940 edition. But by 1943 the tone was bound to have changed somewhat. In the interval between the two editions the United States had become involved in a war in which humane considerations were more than usually disregarded on both sides. Still, for its time, the 1943 FM 27-5 was a remarkably mild document. The shift in approach was mostly toward recognizing civil affairs and military government as having a place in the active conduct of the war, hence the concern with using them to promote combat operations necessary at some expense to the welfare or comfort of civilian populations. Otherwise, the manual continued to insist on "just and reasonable" treatment of civilians and prompt rehabilitation of economies.
