Abstract:     
This article explores the international humanitarian law rules that govern whether enemy combatants must be captured on the battlefield whenever possible. It replies to Professor Ryan Goodman's piece on the same topic in the European Journal of International Law. It argues that no such duty exists, although it also acknowledges that doing so is typically done for operational reasons.
