Is there an English translation (preferably online) of the Chofetz Chaim's sefer Machaneh Yisrael (a guide for Jewish army conscripts), or other English works on the same topic?

There's a translation of Machane Yisrael into English published as English-only (the original Hebrew is not included). It's Machaneh Yisrael (I mean, that's how they spell the title) and the copyright page reads:

Thanks, just what I was looking for! –  Dave May 5 '11 at 16:32

Just came across an older translation - http://www.hebrewbooks.org/22154

Note that that volume indicates that it's "inspired by and based upon" Machane Yisrael and (further along) explicitly denies being a translation. –  msh210 Jun 6 '11 at 16:03
@msh210, thanks for that clarification. –  Dave Jun 7 '11 at 5:39
